Description
A favorite of Beethoven's, the "Eroica" theme was featured in the finale of the ballet music he composed for The Creatures of Prometheus (1801) and the seventh of his 12 Contredanses, WoO 14 (1800–02) before being the subject of his third symphony and the set of variations Gould plays here. These 1966–1974 recordings also include the 32 Variations on an Original Theme in C Minor, WoO 80; the Piano Sonata No. 24, written for Countess Thérèse von Brunswick in 1809; and the Bagatelles Ops. 33 & 126. This disc is part of a series surveying the recordings of Glenn Gould, whose playing ignited reactions ranging from disquiet to awe; seldom was there indifference. The Canadian iconoclast is celebrated for his revelatory Bach interpretations (especially of the Goldberg Variations), yet he cherished the music of the Renaissance, was stupendous in recordings of Beethoven and Brahms, and championed composers of the 20th century like Hindemith, Prokofiev, Berg, Scriabin, and Strauss. These well-annotated editions add to the luster of a reputation that continues to shine, many years after his death.

"As late as 1974 Gould could produce a superb performance, very different from Schnabel's, of the Op. 126 Bagatelles."—The Atlantic

"The Canadian pianist had a fierce intellect and a bracingly clear technique. These qualities combined in an enormously communicative musicianship. When Gould played, he seemed to peel apart a composition and then tenderly reconstruct it, layer by layer."—Knight-Ridder
