More Info:

Limited Edition/ Moss Green Solid/ 500 Pieces. "Bach: The Goldberg Variations" is the debut album of Canadian classical pianist Glenn Gould. An interpretation of Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations (BWV 988), this record launched Gould's career as a renowned international pianist, and became one of the most well-known piano recordings. The recordings were made in 1955 at Columbia Records 30th Street studio in Manhattan over four days between June 10 and 16. Bach's Goldberg Variations-a set of 30 contrapuntal variations beginning and ending with an aria-were outside the standard piano repertoire. The work was considered esoteric and technically demanding, requiring awkward hand crossing at times when played on a piano. Gould's album both established the Goldberg Variations within the contemporary classical repertoire and made him an internationally famous pianist.
