The première of Chad Kelly’s arrangement of JS Bach’s Goldberg Variations for Rachel Podger and Brecon Baroque.
The Goldberg Variations were filmed in the sun-drenched south transept of Brecon Cathedral. The transept dates from the 13th Century and its magnificent stone walls are adorned with 18th Century memorials, a fitting backdrop for Chad Kelly’s reimagining of JS Bach’s 1741 Goldberg Variations. The 32-movement work and the setting of Brecon Cathedral sit well together, with the wild and beguiling energy of the musicians and the mountains around them.
