The first point to mention about Jory Vinikour's recording of the Goldberg Variations is that the player observes all the repeats. Thus, the Aria and each of the variations are played in AABB format, just as Bach envisaged and marked. This decision brings rich rewards, firstly because it allows the player to vary the music within each section by ornamentation, changes of register and volume, shifts of emphasis, pauses, sometimes a combination of these things. And secondly, it helps the listener to become more familiar with each variation - and in doing so to appreciate qualities and subtleties in the music which otherwise can follow upon one another too quickly for some of us humbler mortals to assimilate readily.

Mr. Vinikour plays the opening Aria with measured, dignified tenderness; then, as Bach's variations on the bass line of this gentle, unassuming melody succeed one another, we are treated to a veritable feast of beautiful keyboard playing as Vinikour's technical brilliance and energy are combined with both delicacy and profound insight. This player has a remarkable way of communicating with the inner thoughts and soul of the listener, a quality all the more evident when one hears him in live performance. Here on this CD, he brings a distinctive combination of charm, dignity and feeling to the music, seeming somehow to take us to the very heart of Bach as well as any musician I've ever heard.

Memorable moments for me include the sprightly, leaping energy and rhythm of the 7th variation (tempo di Giga), the charming, gentle progress of the melody in the canon of the 9th variation - and indeed all the canons (that is, every third variation) are a great delight. Then there are the spirited brilliance of no.

If Bach could only hear his work interpreted in this manner-- such sensitivity and intelligence-- he would, no doubt, be delighted.
