I think this album is not good.Why?First,Because there is no Bach in this album.Although Philips put Byrd and Gibbons in this album,I think this album is not good enough.
Second,Philips can put [Gould plays Mozart or Beethoven:Piano sonatas] in this album.But they did not.This is very strange.
Only one thing I like is:Gould plays Strauss Five piano pieces.This is the reason why I bought this album is I like to enjoy Mr.Gould plays Strauss.If you like to enjoy Gould plays Strauss or Bizet,this album is a good choice.If you do not like Gould plays Strauss or Bizet,do not buy this album.

I cannot conceive of how one could dislike this album. Knowing full well that Sony has a brilliant collection of Gould, and that anyone interested in his most famous works can find them there, I think this is a very good introduction to his more obscure recordings.
I had his Goldberg's, his WTKs, and even some of his Beethoven. However, not having much knowledge of the lesser-known composers presented here, I didn't think it wise to commit to buying a full Sony Edition devoted to only one or two.
This album displays a wide range of passionately performed pieces that serve as great introductions to Gould's "other side".
Bravo Philips!!

There is, apparently, no end to the argument over which pieces should or should not have been included in this recording. But if one looks strictly at what it actually contains, the album provides a pretty thoughtful representation of Gould's non-Bach output and is an interesting compilation of music in its own right.
About half of Disc 1 is devoted to English virginal music by Byrd and Gibbons which Gould identified as some of his favorite music in the keyboard literature. The Scarlatti pieces are full of sparkle and imagination, and suggest that Gould might have become one of the greatest interpreters of Scarlatti's sonatas if only he had recorded more of it. So compelling is his take on the ones in D major and G major that they may never again be equalled. The Mozart Prelude and Fugue in C major is right up Gould's alley, and does quite an admirable job of filling in by proxy for the missing Bach works that previous reviewers lamented. The Haydn sonata that rounds out Disc 1 was performed toward the beginning of Gould's career at Columbia Records and stands in stark contrast, interpretatively speaking, to his re-recording of the same piece at the very end of his life.
Disc 2 begins with Bizet's Chromatic Variations, a rather anachronistic piece in Gould's discography because it provides a rare glimpse of Gould-as-virtuoso, replete with thundering octaves and shimmering scales. Richard Strauss was a composer whose piano works were championed by Gould against popular opinion, and whose music was - like that of Byrd and Gibbons - very dear to Gould's heart. The Scriabin pieces are beautifully sculpted, suggesting once again the unrealized potential in that particular slice of keyboard literature.
