Good summary Pat! Also, if you like to read as well as listen, don't
forget Gramophone's September issue (mentioned in prior email) and the May 2012
Gramophone issue that lists 50 musicians that changed recorded classical
(http://www.gramophone.co.uk/latest-issue/may-2012) ); Glenn Gould is one of the fifty.
Jörgen and other F_minor members have given us a wake up call as to what
is becoming available. As material accumulates, there should be a database
that houses all references to Gould and his work.

When Jörgen’s mail came in I felt a bit ashamed. After all this is annus
mirabilis and indeed we won’t see such a good year for GG releases in quite
a while I reckon.
So I headed over to Sony Glassical’s german website and found this:
27 Columbia original albums with facsimile sleeves and labels 3 Columbia
special releases 4 CDs with radio and TV broadcast recordings 1 CD with
outtakes from his 1955 Goldberg recording sessions 3 interview CDs
featuring Gould in conversation with John McClure and Tim Page 3 DVDs with CBC
television broadcasts from 1957 to 1970 including the complete previously
unreleased „Well-Tempered Listener“ 3 DVDs „Glenn Gould plays Bach“ by
Bruno Monsaingeon, including the legendary Goldberg Variations 192-page book
with complete liner notes to each LP and a new introduction by Gould
biographer Michael Stegemann
Many previously unpublished photos
plus the complete track list:
and the tracklist of the Monsagenon DVD set
Now if you are new to Gouldland or your collection is somewhat incomplete
the Bach box set would be a fantastic investment I reckon.
For those of us who are either collectors, completists or hardcore fans
will probably wonder what this is all about. (Dare I say this smells a bit
like a rip-off ? Is there something really new here ? Summet I should have ?
The Monsagenon DVDs might be of interest since this is the first time they
appear on DVD.
Sony Classical Germany does not list the Mozart DVD yet. I want to see
that. Who could resist watching GG demystify Wolferl ?

I for one am glad to have this list for learning about new releases and
new books also for that matter. And there has been a lot of new material
appearing lately! This is a good time to be gould-fanatic and gould-music
The Well-Tempered Listener alone makes the new Bach-box worth buying for
me. (still unconfirmed if it indeed is on the discs though) For a company
like Sony it would be quite easy to make a search on Google with the
keywords:"sony glenn gould edition" to render a link to a detailed description of
the contents. But they have other ways of promoting the box apparently...
Regarding the 12 Goldberg-discs I do not have any information on that
whatsoever, but I would be glad if at least a part of them turned out to be

I'm glad you and some others did react.
I agree that the Bach collection will be worth having. The additional,
unreleased video is probably the parts from "The Well-Tempered Listeners" that
weren't part of the big box. It includes, among other things, for its time
advanced multi-screen experiments with Gould playing a section from a
4-voiced fugue with one hand to each voice. The interview is also worth having.
I'm no expert how to promote classical music, but I do think that it
should be possible to search the Sony site and find information about coming
Gould releases and what is previously unreleased. As it is now you have to
piece together the less than accurate listings at different on-line shops. Is
that good business on Sony's part I wonder?
Jorgen, I thank you so very much for those links. The complete Bach
collection seem to be an extraordinary deal, no? I will probably purchase it. I
am shocked, too, at the lack of eager reactions concerning the Mozart DVD.
It is an absolute treasure. I cannot wait until it arrives in the mail from
France. I unfortunately have no insight to offer into the lack of promotion
on Sony's part. How might they advertise it? Where would one advertise
Glenn Gould material?
