Goldberg Variations BWV 988 : I was composed by Johann Sebastian Bach. The recording is performed by Jeremiah Jones and is 2 minutes and 36 seconds in length.

This is the first variation on the Aria from Bach's famous Goldberg Variations. This set of variations on a simple Aria is one of the greatest keyboard works available. Bach demonstrates his unique capability to compose so many different styles of music within the constraints of counterpoint as well as the theme upon which the variations are composed. The entire work is truly a brilliant masterpiece of music.

This recording of the first variation is a bit premature as you will notice several slip-ups and some problems with tempo consistency. However, despite being away from the piano for several months I wanted to release something to keep the website fresh, so I dug up this recording out of an archive. Despite the obvious weaknesses, I hope that you will enjoy my rendition of the first Variation from Bach's Goldberg Variations.
