Discussion: The Glenn Gould Trilogy (English Version)

Posts: 1

Post by Wilhelm—Xu Zhong-Rui June 2, 2014 (1 of 1)
I've time for Gould ; often am happy to make time...

Well, /search/glenn+gould lists 19 entries, A Pianistic Tour de Force: Glenn Gould Plays His Own Transcriptions of Wagner Orchestral Showpieces is, for me, of most interest...

And of this, let's say, 'supplementary' album as said by terence in /showthread/22924/23029#23029 :
"this is NOT the "solitude trilogy" - it is a trilogy of biographical programmes made recently by gould's german biographer michael stegemann for german radio station WDR.

they were specifically made for broadcast in multichannel surround-sound format, though there will also be a stereo layer on the SACD issue.

the programmes, originally in german, have been re-recorded in an english version for release to english-speaking territories.

they use a combination of collage-type sonic techniques with straight narrative commentary to trace gould's life and recordings.

i have heard the programmes (in stereo only) and they are certainly fascinating. i imagine many gould fans will want to investigate."

Furthermore, I notice my 'GG on Television: The Complete CBC Broadcasts, 1954-1977' is currently at for $39.56 (You Save : $70.42) ; /support ?
