abjured extravagant playing. By the end of the decade, Rousset had moved on to a successful career as a conductor and never looked back, and this reissue returns to print some of the most bracing Bach interpretations of the early digital era recorded in bright and clear, if perhaps too close, sound.
Bach: The Goldberg Variations is the 1955 debut album of Canadian classical pianist Glenn Gould. An interpretation of Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations (BWV 988), the work launched Gould's career as a renowned international pianist, and became one of the most well-known piano recordings. Sales were "astonishing" for a classical album: it was reported to have sold 40,000 copies by 1960, and had sold more than 100,000 by the time of Gould's death in 1982.
One of the finest harpsichord players active today, Christophe Rousset made many excellent recordings for Harmonia Mundi before jumping ship and recording for Polygram. One of the few new recordings of Rousset's that we do have is this first-rate Goldberg Variations, a fine performance by any standard.
