Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations is one of the most iconic compositions in the history of music, a transcendental keyboard work and a breathtaking Rubik’s Cube of harmonic architecture. Conscious of Bach’s affinity for arranging and transcribing his own works, Duo Aliada continues this tradition while also shedding new light on this beloved masterpiece, presenting it with a dimension of timbres and expressiveness that only their unique instrumentation could achieve. The cosmic, timeless character of the Goldberg Variations makes it the perfect material for new arrangements and Duo Aliada have taken on the challenge with the same commitment and skill they have become known for throughout the world. Michal Knot and Bogdan Laketic have passionately set out to rediscover this work of genius, with all of its fragility and strength.
