They were supposed to be a few pieces of »gentle and somewhat cheerful character« to pass the time during sleepless nights. What Johann Sebastian Bach delivered, however, went far beyond that. His extremely artistic »Goldberg Variations« are - as we know today - the most important cycle of this kind before Beethoven's »Diabelli Variations«. The famous French cembalist Jean Rondeau has been devoting himself to this hour-long work, which he calls an ode to silence, for years. »And the longer I play the 'Goldbergs'«, he says, »the more I feel: they contain the whole Bach«.
