On March, 5 th. 2020 world star Lang Lang plays J.S.Bach's GOLDBERG VARIATIONS in St. Thomas Church Leipzig.
J.S. Bach wrote his variation cycle on behalf of Count Keyserlingk, who had ordered a few clavier works from Bach for his hapsicordist Goldberg "that should be of such a soothing and sprightly nature that they may cheer me a little in restless nights." (hänssler edition, P. 20)
Bach believed that he could best fulfil his wish by variations, which he had formerly considered a thankless task owing to the constant sameness of the fundamental harmony. But in his hands the variations became models of art...
on which Lang Lang is certainly motivated nearest Bach's grave in St. Thomas Church !

"We know very little abaout Bach's life. There are only a few facts to go on and our image of him is skewed by statues and paintings of a stern forbidding figure in a frock coat and a powered wig.
And then there is the music.
Bach is still the benchmark, a musical gold standard, the ultimate composer's composor, influencing countless others from Mozart to Mendelssohn, Beethoven to Brahms, etc..."
from youtube, Sir J. E. Gardiner, A passionate life for Bach
"O Leipzig, du boser wurm! Dich wird ein grosses vungluck vbergehen von wegen hurerey, hoffart vnd des wuchers halben. Du bist erger dan Sodoma und Gomorra, darumb wird dich Gott gräülich straffen..."
