VI Early & Sacred Music Festival “La Liebre de Marzo”: TRÍO POLIMNIA – Goldberg Variations
23 March – 8’00PM – Casa del Apero (Frigiliana)
The “Goldberg Variations”, originally called by Bach “Aria with various variations for key with two keyboards” was composed over several years and published in 1741 as the fourth part of the “Clavier-Übung”, something like “Exercises for keyboard “for demanding amateurs. The first three parts were: the first, Six partitas for code; the second, the Italian Concert and the French Overture; and the third, the German Mass for organ and four duets for key.
The fact that the publication was produced in 1741 or 1742, that is, during the author’s lifetime, is a rarity. However, it is almost certain that its composition would be years earlier, since a manuscript copy of the aria has been found in a notebook of Bach’s second wife, Anna Magdalena dated around 1725, although it could have been added later.
Most likely, either Goldberg, or Keyserlingk himself, got a copy of that first edition, perhaps delivered by Bach himself to his protector on a trip to Dresden, and so much was the Count’s thanks and both interpreted his harpsichordist that, with the passage of the years, everybody knows them like “Goldberg Variations”.
Day and hour: March 23th – 8’00pm
Place: Casa de Cultura “Casa del Apero” – Frigiliana
Address: 12, Cuesta del Apero Street – Frigiliana
Price: 15’00€

Book signing by local author John Hardy
John Hardy will be selling signed copies of his books at Nerja Residents Day on Sunday 24th March 12 – 5 pm at the Plaza de España.
He will have copies of the recently published book ‘Driven by Conflict’, a collection of stories about people involved in conflicts of many and various kinds, from the domestic to the international. Some of the stories are bleak, as stories of war and hostilities often are, whilst others are much lighter and even of a humorous nature. Many of them are romances and love stories. The conflicts and wars which are behind the stories range in time from 1000 BC up until the present day. They take place mainly in Europe and the Middle East and the majority are events that involve Great Britain, Spain and Israel, and the hostilities that they were involved in.
All his other books will also be available, including books of short stories of crime and mystery, some set in the Axarquía. Some of these have been translated into Spanish and German.
For more information on all his books, visit www.johnhardybooks.com or contact
