Despite the numerous recordings and historical performances on the piano which have made the Goldberg Variations a heritage of our culture, it seems obvious that the instrument for which they were originally written for is to be favored i norder to offer a listening experience in which all the nuances of the work are completely restored. The possibilities of variation in sound and the choice of a historical tuning help to create a comprehensive framework for Bach's intentions. For this album, I have chosen a Werckmeister temperament to serve as a base and in which I hav emodified some fifths for the variations in minor. This results in a clear and relaxed light cast upon the variations in major, whereas variations in minor, which only seem to tarry before flat signs and then modulate in distant keys, are given a much more animated, almost coarse slant. - Davdi Pozzi.
