GOLDBERG VARIATIONS!
St Michael & All Angels Church, Summertown, Oxford OX2 7ES

The story goes that Bach wrote these variations for the keyboard player Goldberg to play, to cheer up Count Kaiserling in his sleepless nights. Whether it would help a sleep less night is as debatable as the provenance of the story, but we hope they will bring cheer to us this February. This wonderful and virtuousic arrangement for string trio helps to bring the voices out with each instrument.

Florence Cooke, violin

Vanessa McNaught, viola
