According to legend, this monument of keyboard literature was written for one of Bach's students, who played it to soothe and entertain his insomniac master. Starting the theme with a stately Aria, the "Goldbergs" travel through 30 variations, exploring thematic possibilities while showcasing the composer's brilliant sense of motivic possibilities.
