Cosmic Music” 2 Talks by John S. Clarke
Hidden Aspects of Bach’s Goldberg Variations.
Bach’s Goldberg Variations were supposedly written at the behest of the Russian Ambassador to the Court of Saxony, who suffered from insomnia and had his personal musician Johann Goldberg perform the Variations for him as he lay awake at night. The Variations have long been an interest of John Clarke, a musician and music therapist in Camphill Ballytobin who found much in his research that will be of interest not only to musicians, but to anyone with a taste for history, literature or spirituality.
