Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
From Sony Classics comes this 1992 sixteen-part retrospective of legendary Canadian pianist, Glenn Gould. Throughout the programs, interviews with the classical musician are mixed together with footage of his performances, as audiences are given a glimpse into a life that was unexpectedly cut short when Gould passed away in 1982 after suffering a stroke. Glenn Gould Collection, Vol. 6: The Earliest Decade includes clips of Gould performing Bach's BWV 1052 and Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 in C Major and 32 Variations On An Original Theme in C minor.
