Bach. Goldberg Variations. Variatio 29

Bach at my side, Goldberg Variations


This variation consists mostly of heavy chords alternating with sections of brilliant arpeggios shared between the hands. It is in 3/4 time.

The chords are like columns of an architectural structure and sustain the bass line. The fast notes have an improvisational style. Therefore my interpretation tries to underline the contrast between structure and improvisation. The repeats are also used for underlining this ambivalence.
