Bach and Goldberg: master and student

Wednesday 30 September, 7.30 pm

The Octagon Chapel, Colegate, Norwich NR3 1BN

Johann Gottlieb Goldberg was a virtuoso harpsichordist employed by Hermann Karl von Keyserlingk, the Russian ambassador to Saxony, who commissioned a set of variations from Bach to combat his sleeplessness. Goldberg was their first performer. As well as being a student of Bach, Goldberg was a composer in his own right, and we play one of his works – a trio sonata that was thought for a time to be one of Bach’s compositions. We also play Silas Wollston’s arrangement of Canons from the Goldberg variations, and two of J.S. Bach’s great works that feature the flute: Brandenburg 5, and the B minor orchestral suite.
