 David Jalbert Soloist

Canadian pianist David Jalbert tackles Bach’s Goldberg Variations in a new ATMA recording. Critics have already praised his interpretation of this masterpiece in concerts:

"There was a long moment of silence, then a sustained sequence of unanimous, loud, standing applause punctuated by bravos [for] David Jalbert … No one expected or wanted an encore. One could not ask for more." —The Beat magazine, from a review of a live performance of the Goldberg Variations

Recorded last June at Palais Montcalm in Québec City, the Goldberg Variations marks a milestone in the career of this celebrated young pianist. Jalbert’s previous ATMA recordings — John Adams - Philip Glass/Piano Music; L’héritage Beethoven with Louis-Philippe Marsolais, horn; and Shostakovich/24 Preludes & Fugues, Op. 87 — have been met with accolades and awards.

"Beyond the embellishments is a performance of the work so alive, dynamic, invigorating and emotionally fulfilling that if played this way by Goldberg for his insomniac patron it would have been sure to aggravate the Count’s condition rather than cure it. This is one Goldberg Variations that won’t put you to sleep, rest assured. Very strongly recommeded."

Jerry Dubins - Fanfare - November/December 2012

“My first reaction to my first listen of Jalbert’s disc — which benefits from gorgeous audio captured at the Palais Montcalm in Quebec City — was that this interpretation is a bit too severe... But I’ve now listened intently to Jalbert’s disc six times... The attraction is in Jalbert’s uncanny balance of surface and underlying structure. The secret of these variations is in how Jalbert keeps a dead-consistent equal footing between right and left hands from beginning to end. This means that, just as with a perfectly balanced choir, the listener can choose which voice to listen to at any given moment... Jalbert, on the other hand, has translated the struggle of coming to terms with the music of J.S. Bach into a corresponding experience for the listener. Each time one spins this CD, one can hear something different. This alone is reason to sit down and give this album a try.”
