Thanks for the the CBC - CBS/Sony copyright information. A few years ago I spoke with
Faye Perkins (Sony/Glenn Gould Estate) by telephone who told me the same thing that
Kevin Bazzana told you. Rather complicated eh?
Fantastic that the entire Humphrey Burton Conversations are finally available. I have beaten my
computer keyboard to within an inch of its electronic capacities trying to track down a copy.
The Beethoven portion has been widely screened from London to NYC to San Francisco:
it has turned up at many a Beethoven fete over the years.
Pity about the "How Mozart Became..." missing from the new compilation. If I'm not
mistaken the copyright is also at Boston early PBS...was the exclusion due to copyright
or down to something else?
One last thing: The Glenn Gould Foundation has no posts whatsoever on the new live
collection nor on the new dvd collection. No posts, no critical analysis, no nothing.

Kevin Bazzana answers you CBC question like this:
"As I understand it, CBS/Sony has always held
the rights to release GG's recordings (from whatever source)
his first Goldberg recording--which is why the CBC, in the early
could only release earlier, pre-1955 radio/TV recordings on its own
recordings dating from before the CBS contract. So Sony still holds
rights to release GG's post-1955 stuff as CDs, DVDs, etc., even CBC
material, though of course this all had to be negotiated with the
(that's one of the reasons this process took so long--everything had
renegotiated between Sony and the CBC). All of this is slightly
by the fact that anything before 1961 is now in the public domain in
the world, which means that (outside the USA, anyway) I myself could
bootleg CDs of 1957 CBC broadcasts on my street corner and it
illegal. (This applies to audio, anyway; the copyright laws in video
be different, I actually don't know.)"
Hejsan Jorgen et al
How can an
imminent Sony dvd release have anything to do with Gould's
all directions" which was done at/for the CBC?
the CBC sole copyright to GG's many many years of
t.v. programs and
Can Mr. Bazzana
help out on this?
It would be
interesting to hear from somebody/anybody with
information on "Revcom". I have read up on
it and it has
been an interesting read but I'd like to understand more.
It seems there
were some very interesting people involved.
