HARPSICHORD Brice Pauset
J.S. BACH Goldberg Variations BWV 988
Works from the third part of the Clavier-Übungwill be performed for the final concert that concludes this cycle of Bach’s lesser-known pieces. It is a clear call to go further, to adventure into a fourth part, with what is certainly Bach’s most extraordinary work for keyboard. In a fond farewell to a three-year voyage, Brice Pauset offers us his vision of this musical and enigmatic kaleidoscope: the Goldberg Variations, where the great composer, with an economy of means and a maximum of effect, brings forth out of the same 30 harmonic variations a veritable maelstrom of heterogeneous forms and affects. The performer each time faces a worthy challenge: to allow the thousands of facets of this score to shine all the while making audible the powerful structure that governs the whole … Come celebrate with Bach the extraordinary unity of diversity !
