Product Description


Glenn Gould was this century's greatest Bach player, so these legendary recordings are self-recommending. While other fine pianists have made powerful statements in this music, no one sounds anything like Gould. His phenomenal clarity of articulation, digital control, and well, just plain interesting way with the music set him completely apart from the competition. With playing of this individuality and quality, it's pointless to engage in any debate with respect to the appropriateness of the piano versus the harpsichord. Scholars and pedants may continue to argue, but the fact is, it doesn't matter. Great musicianship always serves great music best. --David Hurwitz

5.0 out of 5 stars Inauthentic Bach at its best!! 8 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Glenn Gould's view of concerto form was largely negative, but the baroque concerto with its less flamboyant solo role was more acceptable to him. Here we have 6 concertos, wonderfully integrated between orchestra & soloist. No.1 is the most substantial & achieves transcendental levels even for Bach. Gould's playing is equal to the greatness of the music, displaying fluidity in the outer movements & intensity in the adagio. The other concertos meet with similar success: try the largo from no.5 where Gould plays a single note melody against plucked string background...who else could achieve such a poignant result? Concertos 3&7 will be familiar as violin concertos but they succeed equally well in Gould's performances. All the orchestral parts come from a time before specialist, smaller groups came into fashion. However the playing is vibrant & committed. So this is not one for the baroque purist, but you won't hear better piano versions of these works.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glenn Gould plays Bach 12 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
Glenn Gould is his usual brilliant self. The only less good aspect in this recording is that one of the concertos is in mono.

I have discovered Glenn Gould late in life and wish I had learnt about him earlier, his interpretation of Bach is extraordinary and like no other. He makes every note sharp and matter.

Not especially obvious in this recording but he used to hum through his performances which does get picked up in his recordings and that is a shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bach at fever pitch 13 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Gould is the driving force here and everyone else just has to fall in behind him, as Goldschmann happily conceded but Bernstein, of course, did not. It's a pity the mono recording of the first concerto with Bernstein is so constricted but the others more than make up for that. Better to watch the first on YouTube: charisma in spades. The performances of all the concertos are like a series of explosions. It would be difficult to conceive of a more ecstatic approach to Bach.
