Hi Kristian - Dr. Helen Mesaros mentioned in her bio on GG that she
observed the recordings of the Goldberg Variations as filmed by B. Monsaingeon,
(she was at awe on Gould's performances). So maybe the out takes are in

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 lik
e 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

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?
