Pre-Concert Lecture / Lang Lang’s Goldberg

March 18 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm PDT

$65 – $85
Portrait of pianist Lang Lang with his body reflected in the piano lid.

Lang Lang and the Goldberg VariationsAlways the same, always different. The essence of Bach’s Goldberg Variations turns on this fundamental tension: a perpetual bass line connecting the initial aria melody with 30 astonishingly inventive variations. While surveying the fascinating architecture of this work, my pre-concert lecture will also consider how the Goldberg Variations played a crucial role in popularizing Bach during the twentieth century. A thrilling program presented by La Jolla Music Society.

“I’ve been studying this work for more than 20 years, and recording it has been a lifelong dream.” — Lang Lang
