Glenn Gould: Bach’s Goldburg Variations 8-14

We spent the week learning about Johann Sebastian Bach, so his music is the focus of this Great Performance post.The performer in the video is Glenn Gould, a Canadian pianist who became one of the best-known and most celebrated classical pianists of the 20th century. He was particularly known for his interpretations of the keyboard music of Bach. His playing style is a little unorthodox, but his performance is amazing!
