Gould Remastered

"The foremost pianist this continent has produced in recent decades," wrote critic Alfred Frankenstein in High Fidelity magazine. "A pianist of divine guidance," said Jay Harrison in the New York Herald Tribune. Such is the praise that greeted each Glenn Gould performance around the time of this 1961 recording. A true master in his prime.

Poor Quality Release from Sony/BMG

5 Stars for the recording, 1 star for the reissue. This is a classic case of a lost opportunity to do justice to a magnificent recording. The pressing is just appalling, with surface noise that is unacceptable for a record of this price. I would not be surprised if this was not even pressed with virgin vinyl. The cover is obviously reproduced from a low quality jpeg, and the inner sleeve is plain paper of the cheapest kind. Sony/BMG should contract their reissues to Speakers Corner if they can't manage to treat their back catalog with the respect it deserves.
