Glenn Gould Bach: The Art Of The Fugue on 180g Import LP

In 1956 Glenn Gould's first Columbia Masterworks release, Bach's Goldberg Variations, took the music world by storm and immediately established the 23-year-old Canadian pianist as one of the most brilliant, original, charismatic and provocative classical performers of his time. Sixty years later, Gould's prolific recorded output remains a stimulating presence across the musical landscape.

Bach: Art Of The Fugue, Gould's first - and in the light of the annihilating reviews that it received - only organ recording may also have been a kind of evasive manoeuvre and a possible alternative to piano playing. "Gould's approach seems downright unmusical, and the image it evokes for me is of the trained seal who beeps out God Save the Queen on a set of car horns," miffed critic John Beckwith. The remaining items in The Art of the Fugue are absent from his discography, as are the six Mendelssohn organ sonatas he intended to record afterwards.

Recorded at All Saint's Anglican Church in Toronto, Canada, the original divisive 1962 recording, Bach: Art Of The Fugue, has been remastered and comes pressed on 180g vinyl courtesy of Vinyl Passion Classical.
