Goldberg Variations at the Oregon Bach Festival

Post by Goldberg Admirer » 22 Jul 2012, 18:03

Dear UK Pianists,

You are cordially invited to visit "Exploring JS Bach's Goldberg Variations" at http://digitalbach.com/goldberg. The site features complete performances on Harpsichord (Matthew Halls) and piano (David Korevaar), synchronized with a 1741 first-edition copy of the score, once owned by Bach's first biographer, Forkel. Surprise yourself and click the monogram!

This is the second phase of the Oregon Bach Festival's Digital Bach Project, which is a collaboration between Northern Arizona University, the University of Oregon, Oregon Bach Festival, the Hinkle Charitable Foundation and other partners.

The Flash interactive site is an experiment in a browsing/gaming approach, intended to stimulate curiosity and promote exploration. It casts a wide audience, intended to develop new audiences for Bach. That said, it contains valuable pedagogical material for pianists, including performance notes by Halls and Korevaar.

Please help get the word out, and enjoy!
