A detailed study of Glenn Gould’s famous interpretation of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. It is based on instructions created in close relationship with the soundtrack and the pianist’s explanations. The musician records the variations, makes mistakes and tries again, discussing his way of playing and recording. In this duet, which offers two new interpretations of the score, the movement both accompanies and directs the music.

After studying Philosophy and Multimedia Engineering, Albert Quesada trained at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels and at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten-MTD in Amsterdam. He has worked with Benjamin Vandewalle and has danced with the company ZOO-Thomas Hauert since 2009. He is currently on tour with Vera Tussing, offering performances of Trilogy, which consists of three short pieces with musical structures, Slow Sports, and Ensemble, his last piece. In his facet as a stage and video creator, he is currently preparing an exploration of how we understand orchestral music.
