Back to Bach, the composer of Gould’s two new releases of 1974. The same year was noted for other projects: Gould recorded a Schoenberg set and the first episode of a television series Music in Our Time, both for CBC, and he joined the French director Bruno Monsaingeon to create the fourpart Chemins de la musique for ORTF. The same year witnessed Gould’s only Grammy award—for his sleeve notes to the three Hindemith sonatas.
