“Prepared for the soul’s delight of all music lovers…”  That is how Johann Sebastian Bach inscribed the title page of his “Goldberg” Variations. This idea surely resonated in the spirit of Jerome Robbins, when he choregraphed his own ballet masterwork set to Bach’s “Goldberg.” The New York Classical players present Dmitry Sitkovetsky's string trio transcription of Bach’s “Goldberg” Variations, accompanied by a digital collage of Jerome Robbins’ original paintings, sketches, and photographs.
