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 
those discs!!

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 
whatsoever, but I would be glad if at least a part of  them turned out to be

Hello Stephanie,

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?
