  • Trio Zimmermann play Bach's Goldberg Variations

    Trio Zimmermann is a remarkable chamber group: three performers – violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann, violist Antoine Tamestit and cellist Christian Poltéra – who are revered international soloists in their own right, and who together have reinvigorated the string trio as a musical form.

    Following inspirational International Festival recitals in 2010, 2012 and 2015, they return with one of the true monuments of classical music. Bach’s mighty Goldberg Variations – performed in violinist Dmitry Sitkovetsky’s arrangement for string trio – takes the listener on a profound journey through endless invention and boundless emotion. Trio Zimmermann pair it with the searching intensity of Schoenberg’s thrillingly virtuosic String Trio.
