The Boston chamber orchestra A Far Cry and pianist Simone Dinnerstein combine on an exciting arrangement of Bach's Goldberg Variations during a performance at Mechanics Hall on Saturday. Sarah Darling and Alex Fortes of A Far Cry have arranged the work for piano and chamber ensemble in collaboration with Dinnerstein. Dinnerstein, who this season is Music Worcester's first educational artist-in-residence, rose to prominence with a solo piano recording of the Goldberg Variations. The work begins with a simple, lyrical two-part aria. What follows are 30 variations that build a compelling structure before restating the aria at the end. It has been said that "it feels as though you've traveled around the world and lived a lifetime by the time you return home." Presented by Music Worcester.
