Bach: The Goldberg Variations is the 1955 debut album of Canadian classical pianist Glenn Gould. An interpretation of Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations BWV 988, the work launched Gould's career as a renowned international pianist, and became one of the most well-known piano recordings. Sales were astonishing for a classical album: it was reported to have sold 40,000 copies by 1960, and had sold more than 100,000 by the time of Gould's death in 1982. In 1981, a year before his death.

His 1981 recording of the Goldberg Variations is still recognizable as Gould: the strutting precision and emphasis on counterpoint apparent. So too is Goulds famously divisive practice of humming along with his playing a natural trait of Goulds that seemed to flower into a deliberate affectation sometime between 1955 and 1981. But in the 1981 variations, Gould makes good on his desire for dignity. The 1955 rendition of No. 5 has a compelling, nervy energy the 1981 version takes a greater sense of self-possession.
