J.S. Bach. Goldberg Variations On Clavichord

EPRC 0007 BENJAMIN-JOSEPH STEENS

Although we have grown accustomed to the harpsichord as the Baroque keyboard instrument of choice, 18th century connoisseurs preferred the smaller clavichord for home entertainment. Benjamin Steens challenges our listening habits by performing the Goldberg Variations on the clavichord, and demonstrating that – despite its delicacy – the instrument does full justice to Bach’s intimacy and the dazzling architecture of his music.
