(Creation Residence )L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà) From 07/10/2019 to 11/10/2019Presentation :
On 11/10/2019 at 20:30 in El Canal (Salt) Mal Pelo On Goldberg Variations/Variations is the first part of the Bach Project, a piece for seven performers in collaboration with the French-American musician Dan Tepfer.
The Goldberg Variations were composed for keyboard in 1741. They consist of a single theme, an aria, thirty variations and a reprise of the aria. What links them all is not a shared melody but a background of harmonic variations on the bass line. The tunes may vary but underlying them is a constant theme. Dan Tepfer, in his Goldberg Variations/Variations, offers J S Bach’s Goldberg Variations combined with his own variations improvised on the same harmonies. As a performer and composer, Dan Tepfer has vast experience in classical, jazz and electronic music.
