The Aria from Bach's Goldberg Variations performed by Glenn Gould. I listen to this at least once a week. You can watch a performance of the all the variations here and here is an Amazon link to the 1981 recording. Gould recorded this piece twice, the first time in 1955 in a performance that launched his career. The tempo is much faster in the 1955 recording. The link is to the 1981 recording. You can also get a set of both, If you're a Glenn Gould fan you already have.
