🎼Bach – Goldberg Variations

I had never heard this piece before this listen. I could not believe how the gentleness of the aria went into the next variation which was so rapid. Each variation is very distinct from its previous piece. I was not expecting such crispness of playing. It is a very different piece from what I was expecting and I enjoyed hearing the different variations and how different they are from one another.I could also picture these variations being played for a royal audience at their court.
