About

To be sure, Bach's Goldberg Variations are intimately, profoundly, a technical work for the harpsichord: in fact, for two harpsichords. But the notes are pure music, and there is nothing stopping artists playing them with, for example, a string quartet. And that is what the Ardeo Quartet is doing here, with great conviction, in a version signed by François Meimoun, which has already been performed in concert many times over. Meimoun, of course, doesn't "change" a single note, a pitch, a rhythm, a line: rather, he is working on the discourse here, in order to make it a piece for string quartet in every minute, intimate detail. And his effort really pays off, as the "harpsichord" aspect of the work doesn't show through at all. As a number of the variations are written for two voices, he has fun with supplementary pizzicati and switching from one instrument to another: it's a real four-hander. It is a safe bet that the listener, including listeners who know the Goldberg Variations by heart – but on harpsichord – will discover countless counterpoints and even a few hidden jokes from Bach which don't come through on the harpsichord(s). © SM/Qobuz
