Glenn Gould
If you've never seen Glenn Gould playing Bach (in this case his second (1981) interpretation of the Goldberg Variations) go here. And if you have, go anyway. Be sure and wait at least until the explosive transition from the lovely opening aria to the first variation, which perfectly demonstrates his controlled yet bold and thrilling style.

Link at 'Sounds & Fury' found via the ever excellent such stuff.
