Truly Awe-inspiring Recoring!!!,
This review is from: Bach: The Goldberg Variations 1955 (Audio CD)
If I must choose three recordings of solo piano music which deserve the word 'awe-inspiring', my first choice is this recording of Goldberg Variations by Glenn Gould, second choice is Richter's Well-tempered Klavier (Bach - The Well-tempered Clavier, Books 1 & 2) and the third is Glenn Gould's 1981 recording of Goldberg Variations. Like Rony O'sullivan's 147 in 5 minutes 20 second, I don't think anyone can surpass this 1955 recording by Gould as long as mankind lives on, on this planet!
If you can actually watch how he plays the work on DVD (Glenn Gould - The Goldberg Variations ), you will be even more amazed!!
