REBEL, Jörg-Michael Schwarz

J.G. Goldberg might just be the most famous composer whose music remains largely unheard. A child prodigy, his name has become almost a household term, thanks to Bach’s masterpiece, popularly known as the “Goldberg” Variations. Goldberg did not live to see age 30, and his body of surviving works is not large-two cantatas, two harpsichord concertos, a few dozen small harpsichord pieces, and the five works presented on this recording. The music sparkles in the hands of the virtuosic baroque ensemble Rebel, hailed by the New York Times as "sophisticated and beguiling."
