Description
In Salzburg, Gould performed Bach's Goldberg Variations—the work that will be forever associated with his name and with the two great recordings that bookended his career. In Leningrad, he gave them Bach's first concerto for keyboard and orchestra and Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat Major. This disc is part of a series surveying the recordings of Glenn Gould, whose playing ignited reactions ranging from disquiet to awe; seldom was there indifference. The Canadian iconoclast is celebrated for his revelatory Bach interpretations (especially of the Goldberg Variations), yet he cherished the music of the Renaissance, was stupendous in recordings of Beethoven and Brahms, and championed composers of the 20th century like Hindemith, Prokofiev, Berg, Scriabin, and Strauss. These well-annotated editions add to the luster of a reputation that continues to shine, many years after his death.

"No one before or since has had the dexterity to make such transparent child's play of Bach's severest contrapuntal puzzles. That he played these pieces at such blinding speeds was not necessarily because he should have; I think he just wanted us to know that he could. To his great credit, Gould's playing never complicated the simple. It is easy to decorate naked melody, extraordinarily difficult to keep its simplicity intact."—Bernard Holland, NYTimes
