Summary:
"Glenn Gould's first recordings of Bach's Goldberg Variations in 1955 had made his name legendary. This film, shot in New York in April and May 1981, marks his life-- as if interpolated between the two peaceful Arias and the two recordings, the one opening, the other closing his career-- with a symbol of cyclic perfection."--Container.
