In 1985 the Russian violinist Vladimir Spivakov published his own arrangement of the Goldberg Variations for a string trio at the time of the tricentennial anniversary of the birth of Johann Sebastian Bach. Dedicated to the memory of the Canadian pianist Glenn Gould who recently died, this deft transcription has since made a tour of the world and many recordings have flourished. When it came to recording their Goldberg, the Zimmermann trio (Frank Peter Zimmermann on violin, Antoin Tamestit on viola and Christian Poltéra on cello) decided to propose their own version of the string trio which was, according to the musicians, “neither an arrangement nor a transcription, but essentially a unveiling of Bach’s score”. The result is splendid as much is the exceptional capture of the three Stradivarius instruments used in this recording by the engineers of BIS. There is a pleasant “grainy” sound in the air between the notes and the perfectly balanced reverberations. A total success thanks to the addition of high-quality instruments, instrumentalists and technique. © François Hudry/Qobuz
