Bach: The Goldberg Variations is the 1955 debut album of Canadian classical pianist Glenn Gould. An interpretation of Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations BWV 988, the work launched Gould's career as a renowned international pianist, and became one of the most well-known piano recordings. Sales were astonishing for a classical album: it was reported to have sold 40,000 copies by 1960, and had sold more than 100,000 by the time of Gould's death in 1982. In 1981, a year before his death. Glenn Gould plays Bach - The Goldberg Variations, BMV 998 Zenph re-performance. 50:: The Goldberg Variations.

This album was made shortly before the pianist's premature death at age 50, so it is significant for being his last recording indeed, the opening measures of the Aria are carved on Gould's headstone, in final recognition of the work's importance to him, so these two recordings may be regarded as bookends to the pianist's extraordi. With his 1955 recording of Bachs Goldberg Variations, the young pianist made a compelling case for a work that, at the time, was considered an obscure keyboard composition by an otherwise imposing master of Baroque music. Gould made his counter-argument for the pieces rightful prominence by taking wild liberties with the source. 11, 2001, at the Virgin Megastore in Union Square, Goulds 1981 Goldberg set was the album I played most often in the days that followed.

Not thematically Bach was not exploring the effects of totalitarianism but rather its a piece of art that makes you feel smarter. Dont take this as pretentious preaching on my part, no that is not what I intend at all. Glenn Gould is an iconic figure in Canadian culture as many claim him to be the best musician to ever hail from the Great White North. In his prime, he was also widely considered to be the best Bach musician in the world. An eccentric man, he was known for playing the piano as if he was conducting an orchestra.

What a shame that he couldn't find a way to record his art without the silly vocal tics that seem to pop-up in every one of the 30 variations.
