Robin Bigwood is one of the UK’s leading harpsichordists, and RBC tutor.
Bach’s ‘Goldberg’ Variations were long thought to be the night-time consolations of an insomniac Duke… In fact they’re Bach’s definitive statement on the theme and variations form, honouring similar works by his predecessors while exploring new and uncharted territories in style and musical design.
