REPERTOIRE (Subject to change):
The Goldberg Variations J.S. Bach, arr. Dmitry Sitkovetsky
The string trio arrangement of the Goldberg Variations succeeds because the structure of the piece lends itself to 3 instruments, not 1. When played on keyboard instruments, the 2 upper voices are virtually indistinguishable. When listening to its canons, one hears how a string trio masters complex counterpoint with grace and wit. Led by 3 world-class musicians, the Goldberg Variations project is a respectful new take on a masterwork.
