Presented by the Vancouver Recital Society Going for the Gold Experience Sir Andráa Schiff’s monumental and mesmerizing interpretation of J.S. Bach’s iconic Goldberg Variations. Originally written for harpsichord, they were first published in 1741 and are named after Johann Gottlieb Goldberg, who may have been the first performer of the work. Going for Gold is a benefit concert; Sir András’ performance will help the VRS set the stage for its next big milestone, its 50th anniversary season in 2030. Generous patrons are individually sponsoring variations and the VRS is deeply grateful for all the wonderful support. We’ve waited years and years for Sir András to perform ‘the Goldbergs’ in our series. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Presented in association with the Chan Centre through the support of the Chan Endowment Fund at the University of British Columbia.
