The Goldberg Variations for String trio
Eva Vasarhelyi, Kim Bak Dinitzen, and Nanna Hartmann Rasmussen
An evening of music
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) wrote the Goldberg Variations for harpsichord in 1741. Ever since, the work has been freely adapted by musicians, a practice that was fairly widespread even in Bach’s own time. On the evening’s program is a transcription by Jesper Jørgensen for string trio with Eva Vasarhelyi on violin, Kim Bak Dinitzen on cello, and Nanna Hartmann Rasmussen on viola.
Eva Vasarhelyi studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Music and in Lausanne, Switzerland, and plays with e.g. the Royal Danish Orchestra, the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Copenhagen Phil, and the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra. Kim Bak Dinitzen studied in Copenhagen and London and is currently solo cellist in the Royal Danish Orchestra. Nanna Hartmann Rasmussen began to study the viola at the age of seven at the Danish Suzuki Institute and currently plays in the Royal Danish Orchestra, in periods as a soloist.
