By the way, Gould plays the last fugue of *Kunst der Fuge* (Art of Fugue), not of the Well Tempered Clavier - to remove any confusion.

It's some of my favorite music ever, if a little harder to find.


The Glenn Gould Recordings = perfection.

Here is the last fugue in two parts.

By the way, the fugue is actually in four parts (just nagging :wink: ).

I think he means the fugue is filmed in two parts rather than it is a two part fugue.

The first film appears to be a conjectural completion of the work while the second is the ending as it survives, unfinished.

Yeah, this guy was definitely an aspie. Just listen to him talk (or watch him play).

I don't know much about specific works, but any Bach I have ever listened to has never disappointed me. Goes for music from the Baroque era.

Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D Major (Tafelmusik version with Jeanne Lamon as conductor) is godly. I never get tired of listening to it.

I love his cello suite piece, BMV 1007: Prelude, but I haven't really warmed up to Bach. Maybe I need to do a little more listening, but he's not my favorite.

Gould is technical prefection, but those recordings tend to leave me feeling cold. I prefer Andras Schiff - his performances of both the Goldberg variations and the Well-Tempered Clavier cycle are much more artistic interpretations. This definitely is music worthy as an artistic compostions even though they are often viewed too narrowly as being more technical and pedagogic.

Judging by the comments here, maybe I better start listening to what Bach I've got on hand again.

I've got a EMI Classics, 2 CD box set, the Baroque Collection, with Charpentier, Lully, Delalande, Rameau, Gluck, Albioni, Pachelbel (Canon), Corelli, Vivaldi, Marcello, Boccherini, Purcell, Handel, Telemann,

and Bach:

Badinerie (Suite no 2)
Air (Suite no 3)
"Jesu, Joy of man's desiring"
Sicilienne
Concerto for 2 violins.


I've always liked the romantic music best.
