Studio 34 is honored to host the Philadelphia premiere of work by Spanish dancer/choreographer Albert Quesada as part of its Winter 2023 Arts Series. The dance, “Solo on Bach & Glenn,” is based on a written score, a series of instructions for the dancer created in close relationship with the soundtrack (Glenn Gould’s explanations about his way of playing and his recorded Goldberg Variations). The piece will be accompanied by other related work.
Choreography and dance: Albert Quesada
Music: Outtakes of a recording from Glenn Gould’s Goldberg Variations from J. S. Bach, 1955. Interview with Glenn Gould about his recording on 1981 of J.S. Bach’s “Goldberg Variations.”
