Bach: Goldberg Variations – arrangement by Dmitry Sitkovetsky
Maia Cabeza violin | Sergey Malov viola | Natalie Clein cello
BACH Goldberg Variations
Dmitry Sitkovetsky’s iconic string trio arrangement of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, created in the 1980s, is Music for Galway’s second choice of a more recent treatment of the work. It is performed by three superb musicians: exceptionally talented violinist Maia Cabeza; the versatile Russian born virtuoso Sergey Malov on viola, and Natalie Clein, the ‘mesmerising’ and ‘soaringly passionate’ British cellist, as described by The Times London.
Finghin Collins chose this string trio version because he felt it would be refreshing to hear the work on violin, viola and cello: “You can hear the voices so clearly interacting with each other, bringing the piece into a very different sound world. I heard Sasha Sitkovetsky playing it at the Westport Chamber Music Festival in 2019 and it spurred me on to programme it for our Midwinter Festival in 2021.”
This concert will be live-streamed and a recording of the concert will be available to watch for a period of 48 hours after the live performance.
Please note that there will be a period after the live stream has ended, during which the file is being prepared for upload, when the performance will not be accessible.
