Trevor Pinnock conductor
JS Bach Brandenburg Concerto No 3 in G, BWV 1048 JS Bach arr Koffler Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 (UK premiere)
Trevor Pinnock, Principal Guest Conductor at the Academy, directs the Soloists Ensemble, who are joined for this collaboration by students from Toronto’s Glenn Gould School. This concert features the UK premiere of Józef Koffler’s remarkable arrangement of the Goldberg Variations, completed in 1938. Scored for small orchestra, the version is largely unknown, surprisingly so given the ubiquity of Bach’s keyboard original.
