Although Mozart purists may not appreciate the irreverant interpretations by Glenn Gould, it certianly provides new insight into these well worn pieces. In many places, his performances completely change the conception of the music. That alone makes this worth having - it isn't another faithful run through, but a rethinking of these works by Mozart. Surely, his lack of fondness for Mozart shows, but I think it contributes to the excellence of these performances. This is Mozart as composer equal with performer. These are good.

This disc is likely to have a specialised appeal it is not just Gould but Gould on unfamiliar territory. The disc contains Haydn's last 5 sonatas, extracted on to 1 CD from a set that has only 1 more piece in an expensive 2-disc format. If you know Gould's work you will not be surprised by anything here. He was the least 'romantic' in style of all the great virtuosi, his evenness of touch was legendary and he provides a certain amount of vocal obbligato (not something that bothers me). He uses a piano you could play Rachmaninov on and that does not bother me either Richter, Serkin and Horowitz used similar.

This remarkable set, culled from the archives of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation during the early years in which Glenn Gould emerged as a major classical pianist (1951–55), packages together five discs previously issued singly between 1994 and 1999. The only new CD in the collection is the second Bach disc, which features typically scintillating performances of the Partita No. 5, Three-Part Inventions, Italian Concerto , and the Concerto in D Minor. Of the various discs here, the only one to contain works not issued commercially by Columbia-CBS-Sony is the second Beethoven CD (originally released in 1997 as CBC 2013).

This special edition 5 CD box set brings together all of the documentaries in the CBC Records catalogue featuring Glenn Gould in a role he excelled in, that of the radio artist. Through almost a decade of international touring and public performances (1955-1964), Gould regularly played studio recitals, appeared with the CBC’s radio orchestras, and gave on-air interviews and talks on musical subjects. Gould’s exit from the concert stage in 1964 released his full energy into the electronic media. His multi-layered ‘contrapuntal’ structure in documentary-making was extremely innovative at the time of its creation and remains entirely unique in that landscape.

Glenn Gould was this century's greatest Bach player, so these legendary recordings are self-recommending. While other fine pianists have made powerful statements in this music, no one sounds anything like Gould. His phenomenal clarity of articulation, digital control, and well, just plain interesting way with the music set him completely apart from the competition. With playing of this individuality and quality, it's pointless to engage in any debate with respect to the appropriateness of the piano versus the harpsichord. Scholars and pedants may continue to argue, but the fact is, it doesn't matter. Great musicianship always serves great music best.
