An extraordinary encounter: in January 1966 eminent soprano Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and eccentric pianist Glenn Gould met in an overheated New York studio to record songs by Richard Strauss. Two extreme worlds were bunched together and, as a result, the recording session was a spectacular failure. Contained on this CD are three previously released songs from this legendary meeting, three previously unreleased Strauss songs, as well as more music by the composer Gould valued so highly.

“Not a collaboration, more a collision. Schwarzkopf’s fruity soprano fights to a draw against Gould’s stern minimalism...The stylistic clash — both frightful and fascinating — is immediately apparent with the first of the three Ophelia songs...All riveting stuff, this, at least if you consider Gould a genius. And if you count him too eccentric for words, well, you could always file away this CD as a comedy album.” The Times, 12th October 2012 ***

Story of a Genius


Glenn Gould (piano)

As part of the extensive Glenn Gould Anniversary series of releases, celebrating what would have been the great pianist’s 80th birthday year, Sony Classical presents this 2 CD + book hardcover edition - a great collector’s item.

A perfect introduction to the fascination that surrounds Glenn Gould – his life, his music and his style. The 2-CD limited hardcover edition contains a biography of the artist, a Glenn Gould lexicon with 32 facts about Gould and a 192-page booklet with many previously unpublished photos. CD 1 features unique Bach recordings, while CD 2 contains brilliant readings of other composers’ music.

“‘This is Glenn Gould’ has one disc of Bach, and one of non-Bach, and while in some ways frustrating as there are a lot of bits of works rather than all complete works, the nearly two hundred page booklet full of rare photos, an extensive chronology of Gould’s life and an imaginative A-Z more than makes up for it.” Chris O'Reilly, Presto Classical, 24th September 2012

“It’s not inappropriate that Alto have coupled Gould and Schiff in Bach; as the quotation on the back of the CD reminds us, Schiff was impressed by Gould’s playing which he found so different from everyone else’s. Schiff’s own Goldbergs are cut from very different cloth...but the coupling is still apt.” MusicWeb International, March 2012

“Thoughtful, confident and completely engrossing” Los Angeles Times

“One of the few films about classical music shown in cinemas that's worth seeing” Evening Standard

“A treasure trove for fans of the legendary Canadian pianist” Daily Telegraph ****

“Thoroughly pleasurable. A work of art in its own right” Washington Post

“Altogether, this portrait reverentially demythologises a man whose recordings and musical example remain provocative, inspiring and utterly unique. The bonus 'extras' recycle some film footage but add rewarding information.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2011 *****

““Genius Within” is a tour de force of archival research and dogged interviewing, and the portrait it presents is remarkably complete...It presents strong evidence that he was not just a gifted instrumentalist but also a hands-on cultural thinker” New York Times, 10th September 2010

“Impeccable documentary about the idiosyncratic pianist, constructed from a wealth of archive footage, radio recordings and new interviews with friends and colleagues.” The Independent on Sunday, 23rd January 2011

“Has Bach ever sounded so liquid? The black-and-white scenes of the young, affable Gould arriving in New York in the early 1950s are fascinating, and poignant” The Independent, 21st January 2011 ****

“a documentary packed with fact, verified folklore and faces of former friends and family, subpoenaed to bear witness in interview. The archive footage alone is irresistible” Financial Times, 21st January 2011

“What else is there to know about this pianist? Well, quite a lot, as this expertly paced, industriously sourced and artfully edited portrait reveals. It includes much footage that has never been seen before, relying on numerous talking heads and Gould himself to provide the narrative. It also delves into at least one area of his mysterious private life of which most of his global army of fans will have been unaware.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2011

Beethoven & Sibelius - Gould & von Karajan

Beethoven & Sibelius - Gould & von Karajan


Beethoven:

Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Op. 37

Glenn Gould (piano)

Sibelius:

Symphony No. 5 in E flat major, Op. 82


More than 50 years ago, in May 1957 in Berlin, Glenn Gould and Herbert von Karajan had their first encounter, when Gould performed in a concert of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor and Sibelius’s Symphony No. 5 in E flat with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

Recently re-mastered from the original tapes, this concert recording is now available on CD for the first time.

This enhanced CD also contains a PDF-format document reproducing the original programme from this legendary concert.

The album is released to mark Karajan’s 100th anniversary, and the 75th anniversary of Gould’s birth, and the 25th anniversary of his death.

“…Glenn Gould and Herbert von Karajan gave six concerts between May 1957 and September 1959 featuring Beethoven's C minor Concerto… This… Berlin performance is notable for the sense it brings of the work's incipient lyric beauty. At Karajan's more flowing tempo, Gould's account of the Largo has an airier, more improvisatory feel.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2008
