Bach Goldberg Aria...

I am sitting here listening to Glenn Gould as I type.. the Goldberg Variations. What an amazing things is the IPod Party Mix. I can randomly sample over 500 classical CDs in my system.

It is particularly fitting because I feel the knotty stress of the day wash away as Mr. Gould tackles the Everest of Bach. I can close my eyes.. and even though I have heard these pieces over a hundred times.. I am amazed and enlightened each new time.

I see that they are releasing an anniversary update of the classic recording.. I will be first in line. I have over 5 copies now.. but one can never get enough of Glenn..

If you have never heard this piece.. or haven’t listened for a while.. take a moment.. get a copy.. close your eyes.. and feel the world recede…

That’s just my opinion.. and I may be wrong..
