5.0 out of 5 stars Eroica Variations Oct. 26 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I heard both discs for the 1st time & really liked them both right away but what really stood out were the Eroica Variations. Apparently they were obscure, weird pieces that nobody ever listened to or recorded until Gould recorded them. The 2nd variation is pretty unbelievable, I've never heard anyone play so fast. It's not just fast though, it sounds good too, loud & incredibly dramatic, tense & emotional. I'd put these Eroica up there with Bach's Goldberg Variations in my collection. I agree 100% with the other reviewers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beware: "This nut's a genius" !! July 28 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Unorthodox. Adorned. Unique. Personal. Daring. Intelligent. Perfectly controlled virtuosity. Passionate. Ecstatic.
If you are looking for a conservative, or even a remotely "mainstream" reading of these Beethoven gems, then Gould's interpretation is not the place to start. However, if you are looking for an album that is filled with a genius' fire, mind, and impeccable technique, then this fits the bill.

2.0 out of 5 stars Music and perfornance wonderful; recording defective Aug. 8 2007
By Mr. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The music is fine; the performance is Glenn Gould, and he plays brilliantly . At least five stars. However, at three or four places on each CD,there are loud bursts of static. I replaced one set; the second was similarly afflicted.
1.0 out of 5 stars Great CD until...loud popping noises!!! Feb. 5 2014
By Titooq - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of Glenn Gould. I bought this CD in 2011, and really only listened to certain tracks on each of the two CDs. However, I finally had a long road trip, and was finally able to play each CD in it's entirety. I nearly drove off the highway when these very loud popping/scratching noises played over my speakers midway through several tracks on each CD. These sounds are very loud, and they will definitely startle you if you are not aware. I thought maybe my car stereo was the reason for the malfunction, but I've played the CDs on several different CD players, and the same defect shows up. Since it is more than 30 days since I bought the CDs, I can't return it, so I guess I'm stuck with the CD. I still play the CD, but I've noted which tracks are defective, and I make sure I skip them or turn off the volume. I thought about ordering this CD again, but it appears that others have had the same issue. Does anyone know if Sony Classical will replace this item?

5.0 out of 5 stars Vitality and invention! March 8 2006
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Glenn Gould has been one of the most emblematic artists who characterized with major mercurial breath and singular commitment what the role of a pianist must be. His profound sense of the span, and visible concerns around the search of the whole expression and meaning of every work he played was even not enough for him. And as well as others colleagues such Artur Schnabel, Paul Badura Skoda, György Sandor or Alfred Brendel was a deep thinker and published two illustrative books. In the meantime there is a lot of abundant information in different interviews and TV videos. The impressive command of his leonine intelligence may be verified in the four hands program with Yehudi Menuhin, for instance, among some others equally representative.

This album is one the most important recordings of his wide discography. These 32 Variations on an Original Theme are simply superb. Steeled fingering and powerful interpretative creativeness, make of this performance an absolute must for all who love this admirable creation.

6 Variations Op. 34 possesses that fortunate combination of elegance, expression and temperament without additional ornaments. Balance and musicality shake hands in this fabulous performance.

15 Variations with Fugue Op. 35 "Eroica" is by far, one of my favorite choices. You should realize the Final Movement is composed for a true kaleidoscope of visions which clasp humor, sadness, bitterness and this notable sense of foreknowable epic breath. These are masterful performances supported by that sublime conviction and vibrant sound. The variations must be played under the perspective of the epic spirit about the absolute understanding about what the term hero represents. The true Beethovenian dissonances are rude but that does not mean to cudgel or hammer the piano as many pianists mistakenly tend to make it.

The set of Bagatelles are extraordinary. They are scented of this aristocratic atmosphere, and never should be played under a romantic or nostalgic approach, because you simply would seem to ignore the role of Beethoven in music.
