“Hagen’s performance combines vivid precision of touch with perfect articulation of line, making her Goldberg Variations something to absolutely die for."—Whole Note Magazine
Enjoy a magnificent concert with some world-class music! Sarah Hagen brings this classic programme featuring Bach’s formidable Goldberg Variations to the Studio Theatre as part of the celebration of the recent release of her recording of the masterwork.
Goldberg Variations are the perfect way to showcase the piano’s virtuosity and rich expression. Regarded by many as the most serious and ambitious work for the keyboard, Goldberg Variations display JS Bach's exceptional knowledge of the many different styles of music of his day, and his own exquisite performing techniques and hardcore classical interpretation. Sarah will offer a short introduction to this marvelous and intense piece before playing the full work. Certain to be a rousing afternoon of spectacular music!
