3.0 out of 5 stars A great recording marred by background noise, 16 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Glenn Gould plays Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier Books I & II, BWV 846-893 [+digital booklet] (MP3 Download)
No one could fault Glenn Gould's insight into this wonderful music. His playing is flawless and extremely crisp - some might even say too crisp, though that is a matter of personal taste. The biggest negative on this otherwise superb recording is the sound of Glenn singing along under his breath as he plays. I wish I could ignore it. But I can't.

That is a personal comment rather than a comment about the recording

Dear Murray:

That's the 'Gould-way'.

There's a SONY recording of the Gouldberg Variations on a YAMAHA eletronic piano (Zenph-Re recording) without the humming, the others, Gould is there, humming and singing along...

Link: Zenph Re-performance - Bach: The Goldberg Variations

That's it...
