5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing video document, 11 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Bach: Goldberg Variations [DVD] [1981] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I still remember how, in 1984, when there were only few CD-titles published yet, I listened for the first time to the Goldberg Variations, in Glenn Gould's 1981 recording. When after the opening Aria, Glenn Gould vigorously set in the first variation, I was struck as by lightning. This was powerful. I immediately bought this CD and it has remained my favorite CD, through all these 26 years. What I did not know, was that the recording session for this CD had been videotaped. When I found out recently, I was thrilled. The intensity of the music is even more captivating when you see Gould's face, his body, his hands. When I let myself be moved by the music and by Goulds expression it is as if I feel myself become one with the flow of music, compelled to move with him in the same flowing movement. For those who love Glenn Gould's music, this is a must have. And if you do not have the CD yet, buy it as well, because the sound quality of the CD is better than of this video recording. Bach: Goldberg Variations, BWV 988
