The Goldberg Variations, BWV 988, are considered to be one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s greatest masterpieces and one of the finest examples of polyphonic art in the history of music. Katarzyna Myćka and Conrado Moya confront this technical and musical challenge for the first time in a duo for marimbas which, while strictly observing the rules of Baroque interpretation and ornamentation, also explores and makes use of the enormous sound potential of modern marimbas. In doing so, the audience is given an unprecedented perspective which puts the marimba on a whole new plane as a musical instrument.
Silentium is Conrado Moya’s first marimba solo album. A unique and exclusive selection of pieces to get to know the marimba and everything that surrounds it: the most renowned repertoire of the instrument, the new promises of the composition for marimba -with works exlusively composed for the occasion- and the talent of its performers through the soloist Conrado Moya and the collaboration of Katarzyna Myćka as a duo.
