Description
"Glenn had great enthusiasm for Strauss's youthful sonata as well as for the five pieces," wrote the producer of Gould's final recording sessions in 1982. "He was both delighted with and challenged by the sonata's technical exuberance and its beautiful, unabashedly romantic themes." Just three weeks after these recordings, Gould suffered the stroke that resulted in his death. 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.

"This all-Strauss disc is one of the best, distinguished by the remarkable collaboration of Gould and soprano Elizabeth Schwarzkopf in the 'Ophelia Lieder,' and the vivid way Gould and Claude Rains makes the Tennyson text come alive in 'Enoch Arden.' The solo piano works were written when Strauss was 16 and were described by Gould as 'minor miracles'."—Buffalo News

"As far back as 1962, Gould believed that Richard Strauss was the most significant musical figure of the 20th century—a view that was much more controversial then than it would be now (although it would still start some arguments)."—Tim Page, NPR
