J S Bach Goldberg Variations
Considered “hauntingly beautiful and a work of genius,” by NZSO Concertmaster Vesa-Matti Leppänen, Goldberg Variations was an artistic triumph for Bach.
For three centuries the work has been arranged and interpreted for different instruments and ensembles. The NZSO brings JS Bach’s Goldberg Variations to the Michael Fowler Centre, with the variations performed on a variety of instruments.
After a sold-out tour in March, Wellington audiences will now get a chance to enjoy this baroque gem.
