Camerata RCO performs the classical Bach Goldberg Variations which are arranged by Soviet-Russian born orchestrator-arranger Dmitry Sitkovetsky. The Bach Goldberg Variations, BWV 988, is a work written for harpsichord by Johann Sebastian Bach, consisting of an aria and a set of 30 variations, after which the aria is repeated. These important examples of the variations are named after Johan Gottlieb Goldberg, who may have been the first performer of the published work in 1741. The performers consisting of Annebeth Webb (violin), Jeroen Woudstra (viola) and Honorine Schaeffer (violoncello) are members of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.  

Furthermore there is a, somehow maybe unusual, but unique approach in the liner notes. Inspired by the Goldberg Variations, Thomas A. Beijer has written a humorous Vaudeville One Act which can be seen as the theatrical backdrop to the classical music. To complete this unique approach arranger Dmitry Sitkovetsky adds his thoughts on the Bach Goldberg Variations. The cover photographs, called Approaching Shadow, were made by Shanghai born award-winning photographer Fan Ho (1931-2016). 

Music On Vinyl is pleased to put out this release in cooperation with BarcaNova Records. The label was founded in 2015 by Hubert Koekenberg. In his own words he describes the label as; "striving to bring the very best in classical music with Passion, Perfection and Perseverance as its core beliefs."
