Glenn Gould Playing the Goldberg Variations. It's 47 minutes long, but you may find it difficult to stop.

Yeah, this is from the 1981 recording made months before he died of a stroke. You can buy the dvd on amazon.

Pearls Before Breakfast -

By most measures, he was nondescript: a youngish white man in jeans, a long-sleeved T-shirt and a Washington Nationals baseball cap. From a small case, he removed a violin. Placing the open case at his feet, he shrewdly threw in a few dollars and pocket change as seed money, swiveled it to face pedestrian traffic, and began to play.

No one knew it, but the fiddler standing against a bare wall outside the Metro in an indoor arcade at the top of the escalators was one of the finest classical musicians in the world, playing some of the most elegant music ever written on one of the most valuable violins ever made. His performance was arranged by The Washington Post as an experiment in context, perception and priorities -- as well as an unblinking assessment of public taste: In a banal setting at an inconvenient time, would beauty transcend?

Beethoven vs Bono: the classic mistake
Topic: Music 9:06 am EDT, Jul 22, 2005

As part of BBC Radio 3's recent homage to Beethoven, the corporation made all the composer's symphonies freely available to downloaders. You could go and stick the man's complete works (as played by the BBC Philharmonic) onto your iPod and it wouldn't cost you a penny, writes Bobbie Johnson.

Bicycles and Tricycles | The Orb
Topic: Music 2:40 pm EDT, Jul 18, 2004

Anyone heard this yet?

Slabs of dub, slices of surrealism, and disembodied "found" voices make their appearance on the latest offering by ambient dub commandos The Orb.

Bicycles & Tricycles returns to the original Orb concept which isn't about songs, but lysergic landscapes. Industrial grinds propel you through one moment, only to be untethered into infinite space the next, before being snagged into synchronicity by a dub groove.
