Goldberg Variations[rare lost take]Glenn Gould
 Glenn Gould, in full Glenn Herbert Gould, (born September 25, 1932, Toronto, Ontario, Canada—died October 4, 1982, Toronto), Canadian pianist known for his contrapuntal clarity and brilliant, if often unorthodox, performances. Gould studied piano from the age of 3, began composing at 5, and entered the Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto at 10, earning its associate degree in 1946. In 1952 Gould isolated himself and, working only with a tape recorder, developed an individual style of playing with his head hunched over the keyboard. His debut performances (1955) in New York City and Washington, D.C., earned him critical success and a recording contract, and his recording of J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations (released 1956) enjoyed an unusual popular success.

This is one of the rare lost takes Glenn did for his famous 1982 Goldberg record. Legend says that it was take No.66 recorded late at 4am, and that producers have seen Bruno Monsaingeon running back and forth through the studio with packs of beer, valium and vicodin that he and Mr. Gould allegedly took that night
