DVD 1: The Question of Instrument
The three legendary films Glenn Gould Plays Bach, made by the French film-maker Bruno Monsaingeon in 1981 in the context of the pianist's second studio recording of the Goldberg Variations, are fascinating testimonies to the fact that a uniquely creative and original performer, described by the Austrian playwright Thomas Bernhard as "The greatest pianist of all time", remains the outstanding Bach interpreter that he was in his own lifetime. Now for the first time the complete series is available as a 3-DVD box set.
