Benjamin Alard - J.S. Bach Goldberg Variations
At age 19, Benjamin Alard was awarded first prize and the public’s prize at the prestigious 2004 Musica Antiqua Competition in Bruges. Alard recently embarked on a project to record all of Bach’s keyboard works for Harmonica Mundi. He is one of the great keyboardists of his generation. For his debut in Victoria he will play one of Bach’s greatest known works for the keyboard on the majestic organ at Christ Church Cathedral in Victoria
"It is the hallmark of great artists that they make you forget all other versions, all other interpretations, of a work when they present their own. Their artistry makes the piece they are playing completely their own, as though it had never before been performed by anyone else. Young Frenchman, Benjamin Alard, joined that elite club of artists Thursday night" - The Globe and Mail
