Each week features a different artist discussing and performing a portion of J.S. Bach's masterwork, the "Goldberg Variations". Together, we're making a composite version of the whole work. But don't expect it to be staid. There's piano, harpsichord, afro-cuban jazz, free improvisation, Brazilian guitar, and chamber music. Laughter, pain, and nanoscience. All inspired by one piece.


Check out my new podcast: "the tonic"

A podcast about music, and the people who make it, delving into the hidden meanings behind great works of the past with legendary pianists of the present. Made in collaboration with tonebase. This one comes out monthly, and the first episode came out on July 15! It dives in Chopin's First Ballade with pianists Emanuel Ax, Rebecca Penneys, Garrick Ohlsson, Jerome Lowenthal, Gary Graffman, and Seymour Bernstein. Available on all major platforms.
