Aria with Thirty Variations (BWV 988)

Composed by Johann Sebastian Bach

Steven Beck, piano 

A recent New York concert by pianist Steven Beck was described as “exemplary” and “deeply satisfying” by Anthony Tommasini in the New York Times.

This season he performs “Carnival of the Animals” with the New York Philharmonic and Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the Princeton Symphony, and repeats his annual Christmas Eve performance of Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” at Bargemusic.

Mr. Beck is an experienced performer of new music, having worked with Elliott Carter, Pierre Boulez, Henri Dutilleux, Charles Wuorinen, George Crumb, George Perle, and Fred Lerdahl. He is a member of the Knights, the Talea Ensemble, Quattro Mani, and the Da Capo Chamber Players. As an orchestral musician he has appeared with the New York Philharmonic, the New York City Ballet Orchestra, and Orpheus.

Mr. Beck’s discography includes Peter Lieberson’s third piano concerto (for Bridge Records) and  Elliott Carter’s “Double Concerto” on Albany Records. He is a Steinway Artist.
