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.

The best thing I picked up at the Newport Show! Music written for an insomniac - a disaster, right? Do you write music to put him to sleep? Or to keep him entertained while he can't sleep?? The Goldberg Variations were written when Count Kaiserling told Johann Sebastian Bach that he might like some smooth and lively klavier pieces for Johann Gottlieb Goldberg to play to him during sleepless nights to cheer him up. Apparently, the Count liked these pieces so much that he presented Bach with a goblet filled with gold coins!! So, we have a sleepless Count to be grateful to for Bach's . .

Bach's Goldberg Variations don't lack for recordings, so it takes a pretty remarkable effort to win attention. This recording on the harpsichord, first offered back in 1993, certainly is a head turner - a thrilling performance! Pierre Hantaï, still a very young musician here, plays with such verve and delight in the music it's really nearly impossible to 'harp' on much of anything. Among the most laudatory qualities of Hantaï's playing, quite as good as the very best, I must point out the marvelous clarity he achieves in the densest passages, and his firm control of each variation's particular identity, a huge blessing in music where baroque style often breaks down into excess when a performer tries to create vivid contrasts between each section. But it's the harpsichord's colors here that win you over. Even the most die-hard advocates for hearing the Goldberg Variations on the piano should hear this exhuberant music-making!
