5.0 out of 5 stars among the finest rings I know, 16 Jun 2010
Always heard a lot of good things about the ENO versions, great operas in english, and specially Wagner by Goodall. It is great news for the ring lovers, as recording is of very good quality, the interpretation is in slow tempi as in Goodall's master versions (he worked with Knapertsbusch at Bayeruth for a few years), the english version is sometimes surprising but overall very well done, and Alberto Remedios is a real revelation for me. Great music with an excellent distribution and a style that will please many. Kudos to the record company for launching it, and to amazon for keeping it available.

5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding !!!, 16 Jun 2010
when it comes to the goldbergs, Perahia did an outstanding job, but other recordings are outstanding as well, and then choice is a matter of personal taste and style, some will prefer Gould, or Hewitt, or even Koroliov. But here in the english suites (which are really french musically speaking) he is so far indisputed. The best interpretation in a very high quality recording.

Perahia is by far one the very best of his generation, and this interpretation brings light to the Goldbergs. And the recording is of outstanding quality, a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely excellent, 14 May 2009
You love classical music, piano concerts, or Glenn Gould, this one is for you.
Mr. Gould's life and times have been portrayed many times in very good to excellent books, choices abound.
But here the author takes a very interesting perspective, as this is Gould's quest for the one perfect instrument, that he eventually finds, and to tell that story the author introduces many different and delightful people related to Gould and to his pianos.
One great book not to miss !
