Bach: Aria Variata in A minor BWV989
Composed c.1709, this hauntingly beautiful work is known as the ‘baby Goldberg Variations’ in the music world. A work of pure perfection, Aria Variata consists of a theme and ten virtuoso variations. The theme and variations are in binary form. This is an intriguing work to perform as Bach encourages the performer to embellish each variation thus giving the interpreter the opportunity to make their performance truly individual whilst remaining faithful to the baroque style and tradition.
