Principal Horn James Ferree’s fresh take on Bach’s Goldberg Variations now available for free streaming

SPCO Principal Horn James Ferree’s chamber orchestra arrangement of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations completes our summer on-demand release series.

Originally conceived for solo keyboard, the Goldberg Variations is a monumental work full of color, intimacy and virtuosity. Ferree’s arrangement takes you on a personal tour of the individuals and instruments of The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. With this approach, the ensemble transforms into an orchestra of soloists, at times featuring a string quartet here, a wind band there.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
