BACH, J.S.: Keyboard Concerto in D Minor, BWV 1052 / Clavierubung, Part I - Partitas Nos. 5 and 6 (Gould) (1957)

Canadian pianist Glenn Gould’s first Columbia recording, his classic 1955 Goldberg Variations [Naxos 8.111247], and second, Beethoven’s last three piano sonatas [Naxos 8.111299], were followed by this 1957 rendition of Bach’s D minor Concerto, praised by The New York Times critic Harold Schoenberg for its ‘considerable dash… fine ensemble and musical finesse’. Of Gould’s re-recordings of two keyboard partitas (he was dissatisfied with the first takes from 1956) one critic registered his astonishment when ‘confronted with the naked imagination and sensitivity of a genius’.The two fugues from The Well-Tempered Clavier are further testimony to Gould, the creative artist, shedding new light on familiar works with conviction.
