Piano - Glenn Gould

There's more to Glenn Gould than just Bach. This enterprising disc includes the Grieg piano sonata (Gould was actually a distant relative of Grieg's, by the way), Sibelius's ingenious little sonatinas, and not least, some very rarely heard piano music by Bizet, including the Chromatic Variations, which Gould regarded as one of the greatest masterpieces ever composed for the instrument. You can listen and judge for yourself, but either way, this is one of Gould's best albums. --David Hurwitz
