Another recording of Bach's Goldberg is likely to inspire yawns from fans of the work. Why bother with something other than Glenn Gould's 1955 revolutionizing performance? Pianist Lara Downes' approach to the influential variations for keyboard comes via a 2004 commission of works by 20th-century composers, including Lukas Foss, Bright Sheng, Dave Brubeck and 2010 Pulitzer Prize-winner Jennifer Higdon. The work -- fractured and rearranged versions of Bach variations -- is as refreshing as Downes' performance.
