ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chiara Massini has been a star of concerts and musical festivals throughout the world for over a decade and wherever she goes she plays to both public and critical acclaim.

The press has written of her: “She has revealed herself as an exceptional artistic personality who brings selected works to life with ingenious liberties, her rubato is executed with stylistic certainty and sheer delight.”

Her December 2008 American double debut in Delray Beach, where she performed solo on the harpsichord, and in Palm Beach, where she performed both solo and with a chamber group, were no exception. Both critics and the public were awed by her technical grasp of the music as well as the passion with which she played. As always, the audience was with her from the first touch of the keyboard to the end.

She first played Bach's Goldberg Variation in public in Switzerland in August of 2005. It has become the linchpin of her performing career. In June of 2006 she recorded this CD in a studio in Pisa, Italy. One critic remarked after hearing her Goldberg that other harpsichordists seem dull by comparison.

Stuart Schulman

Supernal
Chiara Massini enters the music, inhabits the cosmic space Bach created, plays "from the inside out" as only Glenn Gould and Wanda Landwoska have done before her. There is no more performer here, only Bach and God. Our lives are changed forever. Ms Massini is a miracle.

Harry W. Crosby

Goldberg Variations
Chiara Massini's take on Bach and on this music, plus her talent at expressing it make this a memorable experience and a prize acquisition. That "take" is warm, fluent, and graceful whether in slower lyrical passages or in those in the guise of lively dances. Love it, and her!

Ed Jeter


Miss Massini has no peer in becoming as one with the music she plays. She unites the composer, the music, and the audience in a spiritual bond. Her rubato is from the heart not a metronome.

Ed Jeter

Goldberg Variations
Chiara has combined technique and interpretation is a very beautifulo way. I am waiting for her next album.
