Goldberg Variations

Main Performer
or Conductor:
Rosalyn Tureck
Individual Works:Goldberg Variations, BWV 988
Record Label:VAI Audio
Catalog Number:VAIA 1029
Comments:A very unique recording of the Goldberg. Like Gould, Tureck's style is very evident in the recording she makes, but she is much less "eccentric". All subtleties imaginable are realized by Tureck in this recording, bringing out all lines with extreme clarity. A definite must-buy alongside the Gould.
