Pierre Hantaï Performs

Composed in 1741, Bach’s Goldberg Variations for solo harpsichord begin and end with an intimate “Aria,” whose bass line serves as the structural inspiration for the 28 variations in between. Bach at Home 2020 features French harpsichordist Pierre Hantaï’s performance of “Aria” as well as Variations 3, 5, 14, and 28.
