Eight mallets, two marimbas and Bach

Would Bach turn in his grave at the thought of his music being played on a modern instrument like the marimba? We don’t know. Probably not. Bach also liked to experiment with unusual instruments. Koen Plaetinck plays Bach’s work on the marimba. And because four mallets aren’t enough for the Goldberg Variations, he is aided in this by Miyoune Kim. With thirty variations, the aria has something for everyone: dazzling virtuosity alternating with ingenious counterpoint, hushed moments set off by technical tours de force.

During the concert, children of 9 and older can follow a body-drumming workshop, led by Mieke Syryn. More info at www.concertgebouw.be.
