French Suite No. 5 In G Major, BWV 816. Allemande.

The French suites have the typical Gould flair. his utmost in technical and metrical precision, a fantastic attention to detail in regards to rubato and counterpoint, and crystal clear sound in the fingers. The last two French suites were recorded in early 1971, before Gould's piano suffered damage in transit. It seems that the instrument's action became heavier consequent on the repairs, and Gould chose to avoid fast tempi rather than let the heavier touch force him into a more legato delivery. The difference is very perceptible to the listener.

PLAY ALL. Bach: The French Suites Nos. 5 & 6, BWV 816 & 817; Overture in the French Style, BWV 831 - Gould Remastered. Released by Sony Music Sep 2015 26 Tracks.

Recorded in 1971 and first released by Columbia on LP in 1974 as Vol. 2 of Gould's survey of Bach's French Suites plus the Overture in the French Style, the performances here were considered highly controversial in their time. Gould's fans hailed his flawless technique and intellectuality. But his detractors, while not dismissing his virtuosity, disdained what they called his quirky eccentricities and, of course, his irrepressible humming that was always audible on the recordings

His Bach will forever remain the benchmark for all pianists – nobody can play Bach quite like Gould. This cornucopia is essential to all lovers of this pioneering pianist. 16–18 disc 53: M 32853 bach: french suites nos. 5 & 6 overture in the french style disc 54: M 32934 bach: the 3 sonatas for harpsichord & viola da gamba disc 55: M 33265 beethoven: bagatelles opp. 33 & 126 disc 56: M 33515 mozart: piano sonatas nos.
