Hiroaki Ooi, Harpsichord Recital
Goldberg Variations, Intriguing Interpretation

Variation 29 was neither fanfare nor climax. Hiroaki Ooi's performance sounded like Goldberg Variations doesn’t want a melodramatic actor predicting or suggesting the ending Aria. Music simply continues everlastingly transfiguring. Like a whispering sounds of eternity?

Yes, his interpretation was challenging and intriguing. Perhaps it might be authentic. But he skipped almost all repeats. For what?

The program was big. Italian Concerto and French Overture had been played beforehand. That’s the reason of Goldberg with no repeats?

I could get very close to his entire view of Goldberg, but not arrived yet.
