Eleven musicians and five dancers in an eye and ear-delighting interpretation of Bach

With Goldberg Variations - ternary patterns for insomnia, Glasgow’s Scottish Ensemble and Stockholm choreographer Örjan Andersson present a unique collaboration between dance and live music. Bach composed the Goldberg Variations - an instrumental aria followed by thirty ‘variations’ - in 1742 for the clavier. The Scottish Ensemble, however, perform Sitkovetsky's world-famous transcription for strings, written for Bach Year 1985. This performance - with eleven musicians and five dancers, who transform and interpret the musical notes and our perception in a unique fashion - is a veritable delight for ear and eye.
