Ensemble Perpetuo presents the trio arrangement of Bach’s timeless Goldberg Variations alongside newly commissioned works which take this masterpiece as their inspiration. The ensemble has invited composers from both the classical and folk world whose background is in Celtic culture to respond to Bach’s music using ideas of traditional dance forms.

Ensemble Perpetuo is a collective of musicians who bring classic and contemporary music to unusual spaces. Their string trio is led by Fenella Humphreys who is no stranger to the Festival and whose recent recordings have been winning 5-star reviews.
