Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations is a contrapuntal tour de force, and one of the pinnacles in the history of the variation genre. Composed 'to refresh the spirits of music-lovers', it is a constantly fascinating and deeply enriching evocation of an entire musical universe. This arrangement with two ten-string guitars is a transcription of the original text including later corrections and additional musical indications made by the composer. The additional bass strings of these instruments provide an entire lower octave, giving access to the full range of musical timbres in this eternal masterpiece.
