HASH(0xa17e5e88) out of 5 stars Essential 26 Aug. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
A gift for melodic expression and an unerring sense of rhythm make Tureck's the most satisfying of currently available Goldbergs. Not as intellectually pioneering as either of the Gould sets, this is nonetheless the most overtly beautiful of all, calling to mind Schiff at his most expressive.

Very strong competition from all the other famous sets, but this one has a little more heart and song. In any case, to reasonably appreciate any one set, comparison is essential and one needs 3 or 4 of the great versions - at least. The lucky ones will include this among them.

HASH(0xa162ec54) out of 5 stars The best Goldberg, without a doubt 12 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Like several of the previous reviewers, I have collected numerous versions of the Goldberg Variation (including three of the Tureck performances), this being my favorite piece of music in the universe. To my mind, this live performance recorded in the 80's is without a doubt, the best ever Goldberg. Like all other Tureck performances, there is extraordinary authority, integrity, and a sense of inevitability. Unlike some of her earlier and later versions, there is also is this version tremendous spontaneity and naturalness, and most of all, a sense of profound joy.
The supposedly popular recordings (e.g., by Gould or Perahia) are simply not in the same league.

HASH(0xa1625bdc) out of 5 stars This is not one of the best, but the very best performance. 31 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
She deserves the highest praise for her interpretation, character, as well as her perfection in the combination of sonority and touch that is almost divine.

HASH(0xa162eba0) out of 5 stars I was wrong! This cd is top notch and deserves 5 stars! 11 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I should have listened to this recording a second time before reviewing it last week. It's true that I was put off a little by the pace the first time I heard it, but a subsequent hearing convinced me that this is one of the very finest Bach recordings I have ever heard. What it has besides skill and taste is character. I expect to play this frequently in the comming months.

HASH(0xa1637114) out of 5 stars A glorious interpretation 24 Mar. 2013
By Phyllis Hirshleifer - Published on Amazon.com

Rosalyn Tureck and Glenn Gould were two supreme performers of Bach and it is interesting to compare their rather different versions of the Goldberg Variations. Hers is lighter and more graceful, his more dramatic, but both utterly delightful.
