Continuing his dedication to the music of J.S Bach, Matt Haimovitz joins McGill University colleagues, violinist Jonathan Crow and violist Douglas McNabney for Oxingale Records' new recording of the GOLDBERG VARIATIONS, as arranged for string trio by Dmitri Sitkovetsky. The beloved and monumental work is performed by the same superb trio featured on the 2006 release Mozart the Mason, which the Newark Star Ledger called "the most essential Mozart anniversary disc so far." Reviewing the CD, The New York Times' Allan Kozinn said: "The three young players navigate the [musical] extremes thoughtfully and fluidly...they bring the music's ample internal dialogues vividly to life and the give the lines a lovely glow." Inspired by Glenn Gould's theory of metric modulation, this Canadian trio has grounded their interpretation on the architecture created by the nine canons.
