Lang Lang, one of the world’s leading figures in modern classical music and star of Channel 4s The Piano, returns to The Bridgewater Hall this autumn, as he masterfully recreates one of the greatest masterpieces of keyboard literature, Bach’s The Goldberg Variations.

‘I’ve been studying this work for more than 20 years, and recording it has been a lifelong dream, I’ve never spent so much time on one piece,’ explains Lang Lang of the Goldberg Variations. ‘I’ve moved into new terrain with the Goldberg Variations and really immersed myself fully in this project.’

As a pianist, Lang Lang went on a long and inspirational process to feel the depth and beauty of this outstanding piece of musical craftmanship from Bach. ‘The Goldberg Variations are exceptional: this is the most creative and, crucially, the most multidimensional work in the keyboard repertoire,’ says Lang Lang; and in this highly anticipated concert, Lang Lang will traverse his audiences through this mesmerising and breathtaking Bach journey. Lang Lang The Goldberg Variations is not to be missed.
