Description
This collection presents the only occasion on which Gould worked with Stokowski. It was a felicitous one, as were the recordings of the second and third concertos with Bernstein (what energy!).

"Gould's 1966 rendition [of the 'Emperor' concerto] with the American Symphony Orchestra under Leopold Stokowski … is a more controlled Gould, very powerful, very individual and a great master of the piano…. Magical and mesmerizing."—Jerusalem Post

"Gould's position in the history of classical recording in the second half of the 20th century is unique. He gave up concert performing in 1964, yet continued to record prodigiously; no other performer of his era devoted themselves so completely to the medium, or believed so fervently in its potential."—Andrew Clements, The Guardian

The playing of Canadian virtuoso Glenn Gould provokes myriad reactions, from disquiet to awe. Seldom is there indifference. He is celebrated for his revelatory Bach interpretations, yet he cherished the music of the Renaissance, was stupendous in recordings of Beethoven concertos, and championed music of the 20th century. These well-annotated new editions combine his recorded legacy in exciting ways and add to the luster of a reputation that continues to shine, many years after his death.
