Reiko Fujisawa plays Bach's Goldberg Variations,
reviewed by MIKE WHEELER

 

London-based pianist Reiko Fujisawa is in the middle of a year-long project playing J S Bach's Goldberg Variations around the UK. This performance slotted into Derby Cathedral's current series of lunchtime concerts, and was gratifyingly well attended (Derby, UK, 1 July 2016).

Much of the performance had an engaging dance feel, right from the opening Aria, invested with both a sarabande's gravity and a minuet's elegance...
