Listening to Goulds 1981 recording of the Goldberg variations, the immediate impression was that this is too good to be real. 100% polyphonic awareness at all times, each voice executed perfectly and each voice with a distinctive tone color.

Gould was an extraordinary musician, but this level of perfection makes me skeptical. Anyone knows more about this recording? How much editing is there? Could it be that he recorded each voice separately and then mixed them together?
