MARCELLINE AGIUS Violin
NADIA DEBONO Viola
GJORGJI CINCIEVSKI Double Bass 

Johann Sebastian Bach (trans. G. Cincievski) Goldberg Variations

MPO Principals Marcelline Agius, Nadia Debono and Gjorgi Cincievski perform Bach’s masterpiece, named after Johann Gottlieb Goldberg, who might have been the first performer. Commissioned by Count Kaiserling to “lightly cheer him up during his sleepless nights”, the work – the most extensive clavier composition during the Baroque period – is considered as a synthesis of the era’s variation form.  

This transcription has been hailed as an “astonishing successful effort that will leave mark in the world music history”.
