This review is from: Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1 (Audio CD)
Glenn Gould showed us what could be done with Bach on the piano with the 1955 Goldberg Variations. Here he tackles on of the master's magnus opus with astonishing pianism. This is not comfortable listening - some fugues are taken beathtakingly fast while others are so slow they are in danger of falling apart. One thing though - nothing is ever boring. I'm sure Bach, the great improviser, would have approved.
