about

The Open Goldberg Variations have a simple, yet ambitious goal; to create a new, beautiful and exciting interpretation, precise to Bach’s instruction, yet full of personality and character, and give it a life of its own so that it will be enjoyed by audiences for decades to come.

To help make this recording truly timeless, we need your help. Share it. Give it away. Introduce others to its beauty, and explain to them why you love it. Make yourself responsible for converting another person to being a Bach fan.

Bach is beautiful, but not everybody has experienced the magic. This is music that soothes and inspires the soul; it is meant to be shared!

Track Name: Variatio 30 a 1 Clav. Quodlibet
Ich bin so lang nicht bei dir g'west
Kraut und Rüben haben mich vertrieben
ruck her, ruck her, ruck her
Mein junges Leben hat ein End
hätt' mein' Mutter Fleisch gekocht, so wär' ich länger blieben.
