Boulder Bach Festival Transcendence: The Goldberg Variations with David Korevaar

October 21, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm MDT


Originally composed to entertain nights of insomnia, this is Bach’s only work of its kind, a golden goblet of sonic nourishment.

The 43rd Season opening concert of Boulder Bach Festival features one of Colorado’s favorite musicians, pianist David Korevaar. He presents an iconic work by J.S. Bach, the Goldberg Variations. This 70-minute sonic journey is performed without pause, transporting the audience through the many colors of variation on an extremely tender musical theme.

Korevaar’s spectacular and unorthodox recording of the Goldberg Variations has received glowing reviews internationally. Hearing this work in the Gordon Gamm Performance Space at The Dairy offers the audience an up-close-and-personal experience with the artist, as if in a candlelit salon from another time. Calming lighting design by Craig Bushman invites the listener to enter the sound world of Korevaar, Bach, and the Baroque.
