Bach JS - Goldberg Variations - Catrin Finch, harp

 


 

 

 

 

Review:

The acclaimed Welsh harpist, Catrin Finch, makes her Deutsche Grammophon solo recording debut with her own breathtaking arrangement of Bach's masterpiece for keyboard, the Goldberg Variations--arguably the mostTitle page of the Goldberg Variations challenging project of her career. Catrin's meteoric rise to fame includes being named the Royal Harpist to H.R.H. The Prince of Wales from 2000 through 2004. This honored position was last held in 1873, making the appointment a truly momentous occasion for the young harpist (she was still at the Royal Academy of Music at the time). Catrin spent over a year working out the intricate details of Bach's masterpiece and now presents her own arrangement on disc for the first time. Indeed, this is the first recording of the Goldberg Variations as arranged for harp.
