The Goldberg Variations
BWV 988
         The Goldverg Variations

According to Bach's biography released in 1802, the Count Keyserlingk earl who was the ambassador of Russia in Dresden was passing the day which tends to become sick and cannot sleep.. Count Keyserlingk asked Bach to compose a lullaby for making Goldberg perform..



           



Bach composed "The music for sleep" in response to the request.It is said that it was this "The Goldberg Variations" Since Bach published on it as music of sleep in order to make the basis of a command of a Count Keyserlingk earl flip this rand variation called "aria and various variations" as "Clavier etude" at Goldberg, it was made it in 1742. It seems that it is somehow true that the Count Keyserlingk earl was Bach's worshiper or that Goldberg may be studying under Bach and this work was made for the Count Keyserlingk earl.
