Still More Ways of Looking at the Goldbergs

As part of my series Looking at the Goldbergs, I'll be posting some Goldberg Variations treasures and trivia. Here's a pretty wild mix: six different versions of Variation 5 - played by Arrau;  Barenboim,  Gould,  Kempff,  Schiff, and Tureck.

  1. Thanks for this opportunity to comment.

    I just finished reading Katie Hafner's book about Glenn Gould: "A Romance on Three Legs". In addition to focusing on Gould, his life, and his selection of CD 318, there is a large amount of discussion about the Goldberg Variations, his 1955 recording and the one made shortly before his death. Has anyone else read this book? Any comments or discussion
