Catalyst Quartet's Bach/Gould Project

Author: TheCatalystQuartet
Having been collectively inspired by Bach's genius and the groundbreaking recording of Glenn Gould's 1955 recording of the Goldberg Variations we have decided to explore and highlight this three dimensional relationship. That being our relationship to Bach, the relationship of Bach to Glenn Gould, and Gould's relationship to the string quartet. Through a collaborative arranging process, the Catalyst Quartet will create the first fully realized 4-voiced version of the Goldberg Variations for string quartet. This project will include performances and a recording of our own arrangement of the complete Goldberg Variations paired with Gould's singular composition, String Quartet, on the Azica Records Label, to be released in Fall 2014. You can make a tax-deductable donation to the project by going to and clicking DONATE near the video icon.
