Gold.Berg.Werk: A Radical Re-Interpretation of J. S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations
Austrian Cultural Forum London 28 Rutland Gate London SW7 1PQ
Austrian composer Karlheinz Essl offers a refreshing glimpse of J. S. Bach’s The Goldberg Variations in his unusual take in Gold.Berg.Werk (2013–2016). Originally envisioned as a performance environment for string trio, there is now a version for piano and live electronics, never before heard in the UK. Essl will perform this reimagined interpretation of the composition together with the UK pianist Xenia Pestova Bannett.
