Aria Variata Alla Maniera Italiana in A Minor (BWV 989) is a keyboard work by Johann Sebastian Bach from around 1709, recorded in the Andreas Bach Book. It consists of a simple choral theme and 10 virtuoso variations, each of them in binary form (two sections, both repeated). The work was probably created for a harpsichord, but there are numerous recordings with other instruments, notably with piano and organ. It shares many formal similarities with the later Goldberg Variations.

The Variation in A Minor for keyboard (BWV 989) by Johann Sebastian Bach first appeared in the Andreas Bach Book, a collection of keyboard works compiled by Johann Christoph Bach, Bach's oldest brother, for his youngest son, Andreas Bach. A set of ten variations on what appears to be an original theme, the Aria Variata, like Bach's last set of keyboard variations, the Goldberg Variations, features a return of the theme at the work's close. And like the Goldberg Variations, the Aria Variata uses not the theme itself but the harmonic structure of the theme as the basis of the variations. The theme itself is simple and set as a chorale, while the variations that follow are virtuoso in technique and bravura in intent, typical of the young Bach at his most flamboyant.
