An experiment that violinist Niklas Liepe dares to conduct here: to put the devil violin cycle of the Paganini Caprices into new light: 22 contemporary composers have participated in this experiment. Liepe plays confidently, without tears... differentiated in expression. A worthwhile experiment, wrote the press about Niklas Liepe's 2018 Sony Classical release "Paganini Project". The young German violinist had recorded Paganini's famous caprices in new versions for violin and orchestra in collaboration with the renowned arranger Andreas N. Tarkmann. For his new album #GoldbergReflections, Liepe has recorded, again in collaboration with Andreas N. Tarkmann, 13 variations from the famous "Goldberg-Variations" by Johann Sebastian Bach arranged for solo violin and strings. The violinist is accompanied by the NDR Radiophilharmonie under the direction of Jamie Phillips. Liepe has also invited eleven internationally renowned composers such as Moritz Eggert, Sidney Corbett, Wolf Kerschek, Rolf Rudin and Daniel Sundy to compose new variations on the basis of the Bach original. Tarkmann has transposed the variations into a baroque conceto grosso sound. These variations thus create a connection to the original and at the same time frame the new compositions, which bring the "Goldberg Variations", written 280 years ago, into the present. Anyone who is prepared to embark on something new will greatly enjoy this album. Bach's "Goldberg Variations" have never been heard in such an excitingly new and colorful way.
