I spent a very pleasant evening at the CBC as a guest of Sony Classical to attend the launch of its important new Glenn Gould 10 DVD box set.
The CBC website describes the set. ‘Now, for the first time, the film and television programs Gould made with CBC from 1954 to 1977 are being made available to music fans around the world. GLENN GOULD ON TELEVISION: THE COMPLETE CBC BROADCASTS includes more than 19 hours of TV specials, concert performances, interviews and discussions, all remastered specifically for this DVD release. This remarkable collection makes it possible to enjoy what Gould always considered some of his most significant and original life’s work, most of which has not been seen since it was first broadcast.
Includes: The Subject is Beethoven, Music in the USSR, Glenn Gould on Bach, Richard Strauss - A Personal View, The Anatomy of a Fugue, Anthology of Variation, Duo: Gould and Menuhin, all four Conversations with Glenn Gould films, The Idea of North, the four Music in Our Time programs, and more.’
