    Bach's Goldberg Variations have remained a challenge for every harpsichord player and pianist to the present day. One special problem with performances on a modern piano is that Bach wrote this work for a two-manual harpsichord. Ragna Schirmer's fingering offers the most convenient solutions for the many crossings of the hands necessary on the piano. She also took the engraving of the original print of 1741 as an important guide for dividing the parts between the hands.
