About the album

Bach's sublime Goldberg Variations, a never-ending musical delight, in a new and absolutely superb performance by the renowned Dutch harpsichordist Jacques Ogg, star pupil of Gustav Leonhardt. Played here with all of Bach's original repeats on a unique copy by the renowned builder Joel Katzman of one of the great Joannes Ruckers' most beautiful instruments. Not only the inclusion of all the repeats, but also the authentic tuning after Valotti (with a' tuned to 392) sheds a whole new light on this masterpiece.
Sublieme Variaties in een superieure vertolking door Jacques Ogg
Dit album bevat Bachs sublieme Goldberg Variaties in een absoluut superieure vertolking door de bekende Nederlandse klavecimbelspeler Jacques Ogg, ster pupil van Gustav Leonhardt. De werken worden hier gespeeld op een kopie van één van de prachtige instrumenten van de grote Joannes Ruckers, gemaakt door bouwer Joel Katzman.

Jacques Ogg is toetsenist en speelt piano, klavecimbel en fortepiano. Daarnaast is hij ook dirigent. Hij is gespecialiseerd in barok en klassieke muziek op instrumenten uit die tijden. Hij is de artistiek leider van Lyra Baroque Orchestra in St. Paul in Minnestota. Over de jaren heen heeft Ogg vele opnames gemaakt en dit album met Bachs Goldberg Variaties is één van de bekendste daarvan.

Composer(s)

Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He enriched established German styles through his skill in counterpoint, harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France. Bach's compositions include the Brandenburg Concertos, the Goldberg Variations, the Mass in B minor, two Passions, and hundreds of cantatas. His music is revered for its technical command, artistic beauty, and intellectual depth.  Bach's abilities as an organist were highly respected during his lifetime, although he was not widely recognised as a great composer until a revival of interest in and performances of his music in the first half of the 19th century. He is now generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.
