Glenn Gould – Goldberg Variations

Glenn Gould – Goldberg Variations

 

Glenn Gould – Goldberg Variations live studio recording from 1981.

This video has captivated me for a while now.  It’s just wonderful to hear the man himself humming and grunting along with his playing.  He really does get into it in a way others don’t.  To watch a performance like this is a privilege and, for me at least, adds to the overall enjoyment of the piece.

Capturing the great man like this was an inspired idea.  There are so many great moments in it but I particularly love the sections at 7 minutes and 11.30.  Simply sublime.

Please take 50 minutes to watch it in its entirety, it’s anything but a waste of time.
