Bedford Park Festival, Chiswick, London with David Juritz (violin) & Adrian Bradbury (cello)

Musick for a while
The Path Towards the Goldberg Variations

The word baroque is derived from the Portuguese, baroco, meaning ‘a pearl of irregular or bulbous shape’.  I wanted, in this programme to explore 150 years of music from that era, a period more diverse than any other apart from our own. I’ve ignored towering figures such as Handel, Vivaldi and Telemann and chosen instead to follow an erratic path across Europe and the British Isles towards one of the music’s great masterpiece, Bach’s Goldberg Variations. David Juritz
