"슈투트가르트 챔버오케스트라의 '골드베르크 변주곡' 녹음은 바흐 음악에 바치는 경의의 표현이다.
슈투트가르트라는 도시 자체가 바흐 음악의 숭배지이고,
이 오케스트라 역시 바흐 음악에 대한 스페셜리티 때문에 생겨난 악단이 아니던가." - 음악평론가 배석호

Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra
Founded by Karl Muenchinger in 1945. their reputation built up with SCO's fresh interpretation for J.S Bach. Following a triumphant Paris debut in 1949 as the 1st German orchestra to perform there after the world war II end. The success of SCO over the next 50 years is reflected in the frequent invitations to perform all over the world with their recordings such as Bach's Brandenburg concerto and orchestral suites, the St. Matthew Passion, and a complete recording of Mozart's later symphonies.
Dmitry Sitkovetsky, the great musician and also an old friend of the SCO, is also a very adept arranger for chamber orchestra of all kinds of scores. Son of a famous keyboard interpreter, Bella Davidovich, the Goldberg Variations seem to be particularly close to his heart, his first arrangement of the work for string trio dating from the early 80's. Having performed his own arrangement many times, he came to the conclusion that an expanded version for string orchestra would offer a broader spectrum of colours and contrasts. His second transcription, the version which the SCO has now recorded, dating from the early 90s, contains such fascinating juxtapositions of solo and tutti combinations that a harpsichord, with a more limited number of different registers would find difficult to match. The SCO's recording under the direction of its own concertmaster Benjamin Hudson offers a prismatic view of this great masterwork. Johannes Paulsen (Jazz Critic)
