Gould’s first Columbia recording of twentieth-century music, though he had already recorded the Berg Sonata for the Canadian Hallmark label in 1951 – his very first commercial recording. Krenek’s obscure Third Sonata cropped up time and again in Gould’s recitals, including his last public appearance on 10 April 1964 in Los Angeles.
