Bach: Goldberg Variations



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
'In this work', says Zhu Xiao?Mei, 'Bach gave musical expression to life in all of its infinite facets'. The Chinese pianist's name is inextricably linked to that of Johann Sebastian Bach. For Zhu Xiao?Mei the special quality of the Goldberg Variations lies in the fact that all human emotions and feelings find expression here. 'I love them above all else, each day a little more, and I have always wanted to share this love with others...'

Since her first pioneering recording of the Goldberg Variations more than twenty years ago, Zhu Xiao?Mei has played the work several hundred times at recitals all over the world. Through the encounter with her audiences she has evolved a new vision of the work, which she is now presenting to listeners in the form of this new CD recording.

'It is the cyclical character of the work that I believe affects listeners the most. It begins and ends in the same way. And when we again hear the Aria, we have the impression that we have understood something. It is about life and death. The Chinese will quote Lao Tzu: "The return is the movement of Tao". Christians will talk about eternal life. It is also about the idea that there is no ending. And so there is hope'.
