5.0 out of 5 stars A must 5 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
For anyone interested in Bach keyboard works and the French Suites in particular this recording is a must. Gould's techinque is totally incredible and gives a real sense of plurality during the denser, more contrapuntal movements (Gigue of Suite V). Although some movements do not benefit so much from Gould's "extra-detached" style, this recording is still musically rewarding in every way and each time you listen to a track you will be able to pick out a musical line that you perhaps didn't hear before. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% true to the music 5 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
Many purists think that it's an abomination to play Bach on a modern piano. I don't agree, especielly not when it's Gould playing. He reveils the heart in the music, he goes to the roots and makes every note sound relevant and right. He is never doing anything for the "show", he is 100% true to his perception of the music. And his love for the music can be heard - no doubt!
