Johann Sebastian Bach regarded the young Johann Gottlieb Goldberg as his most talented pupil. Not much more is known about the Danzig native Goldberg besides the fact that he was the dedicatee of the famous variations bearing his name. He died of tuberculosis at the very early age of twenty-nine but left behind a compact oeuvre giving us an idea of what might have come next. Alina Ratkowska teams up with the Goldberg Baroque Ensemble from the composer’s native Danzig/Gdansk on this recording of his two extant harpsichord concertos – which with their elegance, sensibility, and expression very much move beyond his teacher’s contrapuntal style. Since Alina Ratkowska earned doctoral and postdoctoral degrees in Warsaw and Katowice, it is hardly surprising that she herself edited the scores for this recording. Her close association with Goldberg, also demonstrated by the establishment of the Danzig Goldberg Festival more than ten years ago, is reflected at every turn in her playing. Everything is captured in finely nuanced recording technology, and comes with an unlimited guarantee of all-around genuine listening pleasure!
