Well Tempered Clavier

It's the famous piano works by Bach. Glen Gould, who plays piano in quite different style from him, used to evaluate Richter playing Bach. Richter plays Bach as only his work would be in the world with himself receding in the background. An interesting evaluation.

I used to have the LP record of this performance in my med student days. A lot of fond memories with it. I still often listen to it before going to bed. It sure soothes my mind.
