Gould Glenn - Goldberg Variations -..
To commemorate the 90th birthday of Canadian pianist Glenn Gould (1932-1982), and the 40th anniversary of the release of his famous second recording of the Goldberg Variations, Sony Classical is proud to present the complete recording sessions for his legendary album to the public for the first time. With over 8 hours of previously unreleased music and talks, the listener gets an insight into the making of one of the best-selling classical albums in the world. When Glenn Gould recorded his first version of the Goldberg Variations in 1955, it was at a time when analogue tape material was comparatively expensive, and so the recording focused mainly on the individual takes. It was completely different in 1981: the digital recording process had only just been introduced, and so in addition to the digital recording devices, a set of analog tape machines also ran at the same time, which generously documented Gould's working process. For the first time, the listener can accompany the great Gould on his journey to the final version of his Goldberg Variations, to take part in Gould's discussions and reflections and thus to experience the creation of a masterpiece in the studio up close. The experience is completed by a carefully designed book edition with photos and facsimiles.
