The Variations of Glenn Gould

Glenn Gould was just 22 when his performance of Bach's "Goldberg Variations" made him a star. In 1981, he recorded another version, which was radically different, and was released just a few weeks before he died of a stroke at age 50. On Weekend Edition Saturday, Scott Simon talks with music critic Tim Page about a new album featuring both versions.
