In 1956, Columbia Records released a recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations that introduced the musical world to Glenn Gould. The young Canadian pianist's joyous, quicksilver interpretation not only influenced subsequent generations of musicians, it also entirely altered Bach's public image. Today, record ML 5060 is still considered one of the ten most significant and successful classical recordings of all time. This special release presents Gould's legendary recording in the 2015 state-of-the-art "Direct Stream Digital" (DSD(r)) remastering from the original analogue tapes and for the first time with its cover artwork redesigned from the original negative films of the session photos.
