This review is from: Bach: Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 - 1981 Digital recording (Audio CD)
Crystalline thought abound in Gould's imaginative version of the variations. His interpretation is by turns dark and obsessive, light and playful. Some might find his way of humming very annoying, but once you get used to it, the stark and witty resonance of his playing lasts long after hearing it. This really is a perceptive and mindful classic - a treasure for everybody keen on Bach.
