Goldberg Variations
Back to Recordings

ARTEK Director Gwendolyn Toth performs the Goldberg Variations by J.S. Bach on the lautenwerk. The lautenwerk is an unusual harpsichord with gut strings in imitation of the sound of the lute. Bach is known to have owned two lautenwerks! A unique sound. The variations are performed complete with all repeats.
