Following on from the worldwide success of his Goldberg Variations album, Lang Lang now releases a series of new recordings as part of the Goldberg Variations Extended Deluxe Edition on 12 February 2021. These are some of the works in which the pianist immersed himself during his intensive study of J.S. Bach’s Baroque masterpiece.
“The more time I spent with the Goldberg Variations, the more I wanted to know about Bach, his contemporaries and the composers he later inspired,” explains Lang Lang. “Each of the new pieces I’ve recorded for this project have added to my understanding of his music.”
The Goldberg Variations Extended Edition includes no fewer than seven bonus tracks.
