Anna Magdalena Bach and her notebook

Aria_Autograph

The more and more I get to know Bach’s Variations, I am astounded by their beauty and craft. As my Goldberg Project gets closer and closer, it is as if the score is revealing itself to me. Here is a page from Anna Magdalena Bach’s second Notebook. The music is almost identical to Bach’s Aria apart from a few details, but the right-hand music is written in a different clef!
