What to expect
a profound truth
There was only one truth for Johann Sebastian Bach: divine revelation, which manifested itself for him in every triad and canon. On the one hand, his Goldberg Variations are a profound truth in the form of a cosmos of pure counterpoint; on the other hand, they were simply a pleasant distraction for a count who had trouble sleeping. No pianist of our day could play this cycle with more verve and charisma than Fazıl Say.
