Bach against insomnia

Count Keyserlingk, Russian ambassador at the Dresden Court, suffered from insomia. So Goldberg, his young harpsichord player, asked his teacher Johann Sebastian Bach to compose a few pieces he could play to cheer up the poor Count in the night time. The famous Goldberg Variations were the result. This year PSALM entices us with one such sleepless night, by candlelight in Palais Attems. Over four and a half hours, Eva Maria Pollerus plays large parts of Bach’s wonderful “Clavier-Übung” – no danger whatsoever of falling asleep!
