Two titles from a Schoenberg double album that also included the Theme and Variations, op. 43b (under Eugene Ormandy), the String Trio, op. 45 (with members of the Juilliard String Quartet), and the Variations on a Recitative for organ, op. 40 (with Marilyn Mason). Gould was not particularly happy with the Ode to Napoleon: “The recording was rather more deliberate and literal in terms of the deployment of the voice than I should have liked.”
