The Great Legacy: The Glenn Gould Collection
This series with a total of 61 CDs contains valuable Bach material such as the legendary 1955 recording of the Goldberg Variations with all its pyrotechnic brilliance, the 1981 digital recording of the same work with its “autumnal quality”, the Well-Tempered Clavier Parts I & II, the Art of Fugue, the English and French Suites, the Piano Concertos Nos. 1–5, and the Two-Part Inventions and Three-Part Sinfonias.
In addition, there are sonatas and concertos by Beethoven and Liszt’s arrangement of that composer’s Fifth Symphony, the Brahms Rhapsodies, late Haydn piano sonatas, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24, K. 491, Das Marienleben by Hindemith, Handel’s Harpsi chord Suites Nos. 1–4, and sonatas by Scarlatti, Prokofiev, Scriabin, Grieg, Sibelius and Berg. No less outstanding are the live recordings of recitals Gould gave in Salzburg (1955), and in Moscow and Leningrad (1957).
