The legend surrounding the ‘Goldberg Variations’, performed here by Jean Rondeau for All of Bach, is such a nice one. Count Hermann Karl von Keyserlinck was having trouble sleeping and asked Bach for some pleasant music to pass the time, to be played by Keyserlinck’s harpsichord prodigy Johann Gottlieb Goldberg. Recorded for the project All of Bach on June 6th 2017 at the Concertgebouw, Bruges.
