This year’s Music in the Cathedral concert presents a chamber music treat for friends of Baroque classics. Bach’s Goldberg Variations has been enchanting audiences for nearly three centuries. Originally written for keyboard, the work is here presented in an arrangement for string trio. The Cathedral is a magnificent venue, and centuries blend into each other as the music echoes across its vaults.
