Classic Gould

This album is Gould at his best, and an excellent recording. His precision playing, and his rendering of ornaments and trills, are especially enjoyable to listen to.

I really enjoy the way Gould plays the Bach pieces; the way he gives his own literal twist on ornamentation is delightful to listen to. What an enjoyable album to listen to on peaceful evenings! However, I did not give this five stars because when downloading the album, the twelfth track - one from Partita No. 2 - would not and still will not download correctly.

I will continue to check, but if nothing new comes of it, I will have to leave this rating at only three stars.


I too received an error for partita in c minor don't buy
