Where Bach votes for the Left: Goldberg #26

Alisdair Kitchen crosses fingers. Only four days to go.

Variation 26

A return to sarabande rhythm here hints that the dénouement is in sight; around this, Bach weaves a rapid moto perpetuo of sextuplet semiquavers. He takes no prisoners either, expecting the left hand to be just as agile as the right – add to this a generous dash of hand-crossing, and you have a recipe for many a frustrated retake in the studio!
