Hello Pat and the rest,

I'm not really sure what "certain material coming out of Sweden" would 
be. The only truly Swedish connection with Gould is the BIS-double 
released in 1986 (Sony wasn't pleased with that release -- you can still 
buy it-- but could not stop it ) and the newly released Bach D minor 
also recorded in 1958 in Stockholm and now available on Music&Arts.

Apart from that there's nothing specifically Swedish in the Gould 
discography, released or not. At least nothing that I know about.

As far as I can tell the new copyright rules in EU makes it possible for 
anything recorded prior to 1961 or 1962 to be released on other labels. 
Recordings made after that date are now "protected" at least an 
additional 20 years. As far as unreleased material go, the problem is 
also that there in many cases exist no external source. Everthing is 
locked up in the archives.

In all fairness, I think that Sony has shown a good sense releasing the 
majority of Gould's filmed performances. Let's hope they keep that up. 
Also, most (all?) of the GG edition CDs are still available at a much 
lower price than for example I paid for them. It's actually become much 
less expensive to be a record collector these last years
