Bach. Goldberg Variations. Variatio 2


June 26, 2016


Bach at my side, Goldberg Variations


Variation II is a simple three-part contrapuntal piece in 2/4 time, two voices engage in constant motivic interplay over an incessant bass line.

In my interpretation, I use the repeats to show alternatively the two voices of the right hand. First I show the soprano, then the alto voice, respecting for each of them a line that goes throughout the piece.
