  1. Goldberg Variations BWV 988 - Johann Sebastian Bach

Lang Lang is one of the world’s great figures in modern classical music, an artist who has had a profound effect as a pianist, educator and philanthropist, as well as an influential ambassador for the arts. He’s given concerts the world over, played for billions of viewers at the 2008 Olympic Opening Ceremony in Beijing and is a recent star of Channel 4’s ‘The Piano’, through all of which his charisma and artistry shine through.

This is an incredible opportunity to hear this magical performer in one of just a handful of UK dates this autumn. Bach’s magnificent Goldberg Variations were reputedly composed to soothe the insomniac Count Keyserlingk in his sleepless nights, and Bach crafts 30 variations on a beautiful aria to create a timeless masterpiece.

“I’ve moved into new terrain with the Goldberg Variations and really immersed myself fully in this project,” says Lang Lang. This has included consulting period performance experts for the latest thinking in Baroque music. “I’ve been studying this piece for more than 20 years, and recording it has been a lifelong dream”.
