About GouldComments


Listen to archival audio tapes of: a speech made by Gould; home recordings; test tapes; and Gould's final piano recording sessions, featuring Brahms' Ballades and Rhapsodies.

Best heard with RealNetworks' RealAudio www.real.com/ version 3 or higher.


Listen to a short speech made by Gould while he was in Newfoundland to record material for the "The Latecomers", the second installment of his "Solitude Trilogy." This tape highlights his philosophic and comedic nature.

At home

These tapes were recorded by Gould in his home or cottage. They represent the pianist at his most relaxed and unscripted.


In the studio

The following "test tapes" were made to assess pianos, studio or hall acoustics, microphone placement, etc. During these "sessions," Gould played excerpts from a wide variety of music in a very spontaneous fashion.


Recorded in 1982 in New York City, the following tapes constitute the entire Brahms Ballades and Rhapsodies sessions. These were to be Gould's last piano recordings.

Ballades, op. 10
Rhapsodies, op. 79
