Gould Plays Bach: Goldberg Variations



Pianist Glenn Gould made his New York debut on January 11, 1955. His first recording,   Bach's "Goldberg Variations," took place that June. The record won instant acclaim. In 1981 Gould departed from his custom of not re-recording a work and, 26 years after his first recording of the "Goldberg Variations," went into the same New York studio for his second recording of the work. Gould viewed the two interpretations as substantially different. This new recording won two Grammy Awards.  Total Time: 50 minutes
