For her second Warner Classics release, young Italian pianist Beatrice Rana turns to a pinnacle of the solo keyboard repertoire and a composer she has described as “my first love”: Johann Sebastian Bach. Her interpretation of his epic Goldberg Variations bears out Le Monde’s judgement that “Beatrice Rana certainly has nothing left to prove when it comes to technique, but what makes an impression are her calm maturity and her sense of architecture,” and Gramophone’s that she is “a fully developed artist of a stature that belies her tender years.”

For her second Warner Classics release, young Italian pianist Beatrice Rana turns to a pinnacle of the solo keyboard repertoire and a composer she has described as “my first love”: Johann Sebastian Bach. Her interpretation of his epic Goldberg Variations bears out Le Monde’s judgement that “Beatrice Rana certainly has nothing left to prove when it comes to technique, but what makes an impression are her calm maturity and her sense of architecture,” and Gramophone’s that she is “a fully developed artist of a stature that belies her tender years.” Bach was the composer who most obsessed Beatrice Rana as a child, and in a recent interview with Pianist magazine, she confessed that it would be his music, and above all the Goldberg Variations, that she would choose if she had to devote her life to a single composer. As she said: “I’m very happy to be going back to Bach … It’s best to avoid Bach in competitions … you can’t expose yourself to be totally killed by the jury! But Bach is my first love; now I am allowed to play it in public and I’m really looking forward to that.”

Die Goldberg-Variationen sind ein Höhepunkt barocker Variationskunst. Jeder Einzelsatz besitzt seinen ganz eigenen Charakter. Der Zusammenhang der Variationen untereinander ergibt sich durch das gemeinsame Bassthema und durch einen planvollen Gesamtaufbau des Werkes mit regelmäßig eingefügten, in den Oberstimmen streng kanonischen Sätzen.

The title alone is enough to make the heart beat a little faster. It is not coincidental that many music lovers have just this work as a centre in their private musical universe, a piece they return to again and again, always to find something new. A set of variations which stretches the limits; old man Bach with the powers to make the variation-form a display of pure music. This release concludes Ketil Haugsand"s recordings of all Bach"s "Clavierübung" on harpsichord for Simax Classics. The two earlier releases became reference recordings over-night, and Goldberg really is the jewel of the crown. As always Haugsand"s interpretation is no scratching the surface, but taking you through to the deeper layers of this music in breathing and singing phrases, along the map drawn up by Bach.

With this transcription of the Goldberg Variations for string trio Dmitry Sitkovetsky pays homage to the genius of Bach over and above the original works for violin. The parts for violin, viola and cello are not divided in the context of a Baroque string ensemble supported by a basso continuo. The three equal partners function here like the different registers of a single instrument.

Bach dedicated the Aria mit verschiedenen Veränderungen to "music-lovers for the pleasure of their souls". May the transcription presented here be received in this spirit.

An air of leisure, if not outright luxury, pervades pianist Ragna Schirmer's 1999 recording of J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations. From the deluxe double-disc packaging – many Goldberg recordings make do with only one CD – to the taking of all repeats, this is a set for dedicated listeners who have ample time to appreciate the subtleties of Bach's art of variation, and the patience to devote nearly 87 minutes to hearing this work straight through. It would be unfair to suggest that Schirmer plays the variations too slowly, or that the performance is in any way sluggish or tedious because she takes her time. Indeed, she is quite capable of imparting a feeling of virtuosity and brilliance as she skillfully works her way through the embellishments and the trickier passages of Bach's elaborate counterpoint, …….

…Overall, Staier is persuasive in his choice of tempi, ornamentation, mechanical proficiency, and his basic characterization—one of the most important aspects to a successful performance of this piece. He has a way of treating these variations individually, much as Gould did in his first recording of the Goldbergs. Most importantly, he has…energy and life.

Jan Hanford (jsbach.org) wrote:
"The Goldberg Variations is one of those works that should be in everyone's Bach music collection. Their level of complexity is balanced by a musical intimacy that makes them universally enjoyable.
Everyone has recorded this work, it seems to be a measuring stick of every performer's abilities. Some are excellent; some fail. Trevor Pinnock, known mostly as conductor of the exquisite English Concert, performs here with fantastic energy, precision and charm.
Trevor Pinnock's special understanding of Bach's music is evident here and his performance is remarkable. Speed, clarity, sensitivity; all the components necessary in a great performance with no strange interpretive nuances getting in the way.
The recording itself is crystal clear ADD with the microphone appropriately close to the harpsichord. There is no ambient echo which is often distracting and, sometimes, annoying in harpsichord recordings. This recording is so perfect it sounds like Trevor Pinnock is in your living room performing for you."

Among recordings of Bach's monumental "Goldberg Variations" on the piano, András Schiff's 1982 set is justly famous. Unlike so many discs that have been issued in tired series designated "legendary recordings" or some other such term, this one fully lives up to the billing with its incredible delineation of Bach's contrapuntal lines. You hear every note, every hidden piece of the inner clockwork of each variation. Sample variation 14, with its trills erupting sharply from each line like spring flowers blooming with freakishly rapid intensity – nobody else has ever given this variation such a glittering quality. Even as Schiff uses the full resources of the piano, with lots of pedal and thoroughly unidiomatic crescendos, he articulates every note Bach wrote. Schiff sets himself technical challenges and then surmounts them. Beginning with the opening Aria he sets a blistering pace – one that may seem too fast, especially in the slow variations, to those raised on Glenn Gould's dreamy readings. But listen to the high-wire act Schiff performs in the canonic variation 21. The intensity is ramped up by the fact that Schiff often barely pauses between variations; one idea follows another, from both Bach and Schiff, with breakneck speed.
