Dear Bach Forum,

You are cordially invited to visit "Exploring JS Bach's Goldberg Variations" at http://digitalbach.com/goldberg . This is the second phase of the Oregon Bach Festival's Digital Bach Project, which is a collaboration between Northern Arizona University, the University of Oregon, Oregon Bach Festival, Hänssler Classic, and the Hinkle Charitable Foundation.

The Flash interactive site is an experiment in a browsing/gaming approach, intended to stimulate curiosity and promote exploration. It casts a wide audience, not targeted for any particular group. The object is to develop new audiences for Bach. That said, it contains interesting pedagogical material, including animation of the nine canons of BWV 988 as well as Bach's fourteen-canon addendum (BWV 1087).

Digitalbach-Goldberg features complete performances on Harpsichord (Matthew Halls) and piano (David Korevaar), synchronized with a 1741 first-edition copy of the score, once owned by Bach's first biographer, Forkel. Surprise yourself and click the monogram!

Please help get the word out, and enjoy!

Timothy A. Smith
Professor of Music Theory
