An experimental recording in which Gould looped several microphones at various distances from the piano. It is also a declaration of his love for the great Finnish composer, whom he had met in Berlin in the late 1950s at a performance of Sibelius’s Fifth under Herbert von Karajan—“one of the truly indelible musical-dramatic experiences of my life.”
