Scott Irvine's transcription of the Aria that begins and ends Bachâ€™s famous Goldberg Variations is a tribute to the great Canadian pianist Glenn Gould. The arrangement is crafted to capture as much of the nuance of Gouldâ€™s performance as possible, and allows very expressive and sensitive playing from all members of the ensemble.
