About

Glenn Gould’s legendary 1955 Goldberg Variations. The original album in state-of-the-art ‘Direct Stream Digital’ (DSD) remastering from the original analogue tapes. Original LP cover artwork redesigned from the original negative films of the session photos. Booklet with original liner notes and session photos.

In 1956, Columbia Records released a recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations that introduced the musical world to Glenn Gould. The young Canadian pianist’s joyous, quicksilver interpretation not only influenced subsequent generations of musicians, it also entirely altered Bach’s public image. Today, this recording is still considered one of the ten most significant and successful classical recordings of all time.
