LIST OF GOULD PERFORMANCES CITEDTHE FOLLOWING IS a list of all of the performances by Glenn Gouldconcerts, studio recordings, radio and television broadcasts, films--that are referred to
in this book and that have been made available to the public; it includes commercial releases
on LP, CD, videotape, and laserdisc, as well as performances preserved on acetate discs in
the NLC. (Not all of the commercial releases are necessarily in print at the present time,
however.) The list also includes three posthumous commercial recordings of works
composed by Gould.Only performances of complete works or movements are listed, not the shorter excerpts
that Gould occasionally played in his broadcasts, films, and recorded interviews.All Gould performances are on the piano unless otherwise specified.For performances released on CD in Sony Classical's Glenn Gould Edition (GGE, 1992-7), and/or on videotape and laserdisc in Sony Classical's Glenn Gould Collection
(GGC, 1992-4), I simply note the relevant series and volume numbers. These comprehensive series--the official Gouldopera omnia--are readily available internationally and are
likely to remain in print indefinitely; for these reasons, I do not provide cataloguing
numbers, details about original LP releases, or other discographic information for performances contained therein. I do, however, provide cataloguing numbers and release dates
for those performances available only on labels other than Sony Classical or on acetate discs
in the NLC, though in these cases I cite only the particular release I consulted, not whatever
alternatives may exist. (Some of Gould's concert and broadcast performances appeared
posthumously on CD from as many as half a dozen different labels.) This list, in other
words, is intended to reveal the sources I used and to point readers interested in finding a
particular recorded performance in the right direction; it is not intended to duplicate
detailed information already available in published Gould discographies.If I refer at various points in the book to all or most of the works in a series or set-- Bach WTC, Mozart's sonatas, Brahms's Intermezzi--I give a single citation for the whole
set in order to simplify the list, especially where the whole set appears on a single CD or
boxed set in the GGE. To locate discussions of specific performances in the text, see the
references to individual composers and works in the index.As of this writing, the GGE comprises eight untitled volumes (totalling more than
seventy CDs), and I cite them here simply as 'i' to 'viii'. The GGC comprises sixteen tided
volumes, each a little less than an hour in length; I cite them here simply as 'i' to 'xvi'. A list
of tides for each volume follows:
|GGC i: Prologue|
|GGC ii: Sonatas and Dialogues|
|GGC iii: End of Concerts|
|GGC iv: So You Want to Write a Fugue?|
|GGC v: The Conductor|
