OUT NOW | Trio Zimmermann's New CD: 'Bach: Goldberg Variations' [LISTEN]

BIS Records has announced the release of the Trio Zimmermann's new album: 'Johann Sebastian Bach: Goldberg Variations'

BIS Records has announced the release of the Trio Zimmermann's new album: Johann Sebastian Bach: Goldberg Variations.

Comprising violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann, violist Antoine Tamestit and cellist Christian Poltera, the disc features the ensemble's own original arrangement of Bach's monumental Goldberg Variations.

''After intensely working on, performing and recording the main repertoire for string trio over the past 10 years, we felt that conquering the Goldberg Variations was a logical next step for our ensemble ...." Christian has told The Violin Channel.

"No other piece has brought the three of us closer ... working together on developing our own arrangement was an enormous challenge but also a very satisfying process ... and we simply hope to offer a new perspective on this masterpiece ... " he has said.

"As string players we are able to sustain notes, lines and voices which can add some transparency to the complex polyphonic writing - but hopefully without losing too much of the keyboard's playful virtuosity!''
