  1. Goldberg Variations BWV 988 - Johann Sebastian Bach

A monumental work composed, according to its title-page, ‘for the refreshment of the spirits’, Bach’s ‘Goldberg’ Variations were long thought to be the night-time consolations of an insomniac Duke. In fact, they’re Bach’s definitive statement on the theme and variations form, honouring similar works by his predecessors while exploring uncharted territories in style and musical design.

Robin Bigwood is a harpsichordist and player of various other keyboard instruments including piano and organ, who performs with some of the very best ensembles in the UK such as Passacaglia, Feinstein Ensemble, London Baroque, Florilegium and The King’s Consort.

This concert forms part of Musica Deo Sacra, the annual festival celebrating music in the liturgy at Tewkesbury Abbey, which runs from 30 July to 5 August. For further details see tewkesburyabbey.org.uk
