Andre Tchaikovsky is one of the true genuis pianists from the second half of the 20th century. His recording of the Goldberg Variations was rightly famous for the analytical qualities, the accuracy of his tempi and the overall power behind his playing, especially in variations 1 and 10. The variation 27 stands apart from other recordings, played with every note detached, which makes it sound playful and mischievous. It is a pity he did not observe any repeats. On top of that, the absence of fillers in this full-priced CD would make it less appealling.
