Alexander Schwarzkopf Performs Bach- Goldberg Variations
Bach- Goldberg Variations
MarshAnne Landing Winery
Sunday September 21, 3:00 PM

The "Goldberg" Variations is often regarded as the most serious and ambitious composition ever written for harpsichord. Based on a single ground bass theme, the variations display not only Bach's exceptional knowledge of diverse styles of music of the day but also his exquisite performing techniques.  The work has long been regarded as the most important set of variations composed in the Baroque era.
Alex, is a pianist, composer, and teacher from Colorado, but now resides in Eugene Oregon where he received his Doctorate in piano performance from the University of Oregon.  Alex is engaged as concert pianist performing domestically as well as in international festivals in Germany and Italy. 
We hope you can come indulge yourself in a rare, fascinatingly beautiful afternoon of piano music that shows off the virtuoso technique required of this seldom performed piece.
Admission $30 includes abundant appetizers.  Due to limited seating advanced reservations are required (541-459-7998).
