In 1955 Glenn Gould signed an exclusive contract with Columbia Masterworks, and remained with the label until his untimely death in 1982. Gould’s first release, Bach’s Goldberg Variations, took the music world by storm, and immediately established the 22-year-old Canadian pianist as one of the most brilliant, original, charismatic and provocative classical performers of his time. Sixty years later, Gould’s prolific recorded output remains a stimulating presence. Now a completely remastered limited edition from Sony Classical, containing all the authorized Columbia recordings on 78 audio CDs, allows him to resound with greater fidelity to the originals than ever before.
The Glenn Gould Remastered – The Complete Album Collection box set also contains a 416-page book with complete original liner notes (many penned by Gould himself), a wealth of facsimile documents, rare photographs, full discographical information, and a newly commissioned introductory essay by Gould scholar and biographer Kevin Bazzana. Three additional CDs contain interviews and spoken commentary from Gould himself.
