Catrin Finch “Aria Mit 30 Veränderungen, BWV 988 “Goldberg Variations”, Variation 3″.

Hey people! đŸ™‚

Let’s listen to some Baroque music today, in the arrangement of great Welsh harpist Catrin Finch whose music I’ve shared here a few times already. It is a part of composition by Johann Sebastian Bach, which he created for count Herman Karl von Keyserling, originally to be played on harpsichord. Interestingly, the piece was meant to cure the count’s insomnia. It was played to him by his musician, who was at the same time Bach’s student – Johann Gottlieb Goldberg – hence it’s called “Goldberg’s Variations”. I’m not particularly well acquainted with Baroque music, but I really like how this sounds onharp, and I thought we’d have a listen to the variation no. 3.
