Bach, Rinaldo Alessandrini, Concerto Italiano - Variations On Variations mp3 album

Bach: Variations on Variations. San Francesco Church, Trevi (ITaly). Bach: Variations on Variations.

Rinaldo Alessandrini is a major conductor and harpsichordist specializing in Italian Baroque music. During the 1980s and 1990s Alessandrini and Concerto Italiano established themselves as the leading ensemble for Italian Baroque music from the music's home country

In this programme entitled Variations on Variations, Rinaldo Alessandrini, one of the today’s references on Baroque music, has chosen to adapt the Goldberg Variations and the Aria variata alla maniera italiana - initially composed for the keyboard - for small string ensemble, from duo to quartet.

Bach's small yet great Goldberg Variations have been arranged countless times. Yet this recording benefits immensely from the experience which the baroque ensemble brings to the table. Alessandrini and the Concerto Italiano draw out the dance-like qualities of the variations, creating an album full of joie de vivre. Bach: Variations on Variations (Arr. for Baroque Ensemble). Alessandrini, Concerto Italiano.

Rinaldo Alessandrini. Most arrangements of Bach’s adaptable music aim to bring it up to date for modern instruments; this group of transcriptions adapt it to the resources of the time but in new guises. So the great organ Passacaglia in C minor becomes a vigorous essay for solo strings, adding transparency and bite to the glorious sonorities. The Aria variata and Canzona are lesser pieces, but the revelation here is the Goldberg Variations, reimagined as a breathtaking romp.
