5.0 out of 5 stars The Magpie Musican's Musings, 21 Oct 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Glenn Gould Reader (Paperback)
The GG Reader is a collection of Gould's most persuasive articles, interviews, reviews and liner notes. Sometimes it descends into trivia, but mostly this is a fascinating and absorbing collection of music thoughts from one of the century's most original music thinkers. Highlights include Gould's essays on Strauss and Schoenberg, the prophetic "the Prospects of Recording" and his views on Russian music.
The Reader is ideal as a book to dip into, to sample and to savour. Some of his most amusing record sleeve notes are included, pieces about his music heros and heroines (the Stokowski Interview is particularly good) and much more besides.
The Reader then is one of Gould's most interesting legacies - the collected thoughts and views of a contraversial and much loved artist.
