: Glenn Gould Evening: the Idea of Gould

Since his death at the age of 50 in 1982 the myth of Glenn Gould, recluse, recording artist, radio innovator and piano-playing genius, has snowballed. In this special evening of programmes Christopher Cook features some of his best-loved - and most idiosyncratic - recordings, the comments of colleagues and admirers, and interviews recorded at this autumn's Glenn Gould
Gathering in Toronto. Sharing the evening are broadcaster and Gould-collaborator Humphrey Burton, writer Nicholas Spice and Canadian novelist Anne Michaels.
7.02 This Is Glenn Gould. An introduction to the man, his music and his enduring appeal. Including an unissued recording of the teenage Gould playing Chopin.
7.15 Variations on a Theme. Throughout his life Gould was closely associated with Bach's monumental Goldberg Variations. Colleagues and fellow keyboard players unravel the magic of his 1955 studio recording. With Angela Hewitt, Maggie Cole, John Roberts and Tim Page.
7.35 The Cult of Genius. Was Gould a mad genius? Did it help him sell records? Steven Connor considers the history of the eccentric performer with Sander Gilman and Tim Page. Followed by music by Glenn Gould 's s favourite composer,
Orlando Gibbons , and one of his own short pieces.
8.10 Brahms Piano Concerto No 1 in D minor (Maestoso). In 1962 Gould performed
Brahms's first piano concerto with Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic. It was a somewhat unorthodox performance, and Bernstein prefaced it with a disclaimer addressed to the Carnegie Hall audience.
8.45 Long Live the Recording Studio! In 1964 Gould gave his last concert. Many thought his withdrawal was a publicity stunt, but he never played in public again and repeatedly defended his decision in interviews - famously on BBC Television with Humphrey Burton.
9.00 Wagner, transcr Gould Prelude: Die Meistersinger von Nurmberg
9.10 Gould and Mozart. The pianists Angela Hewitt and Joanna MacGregor consider Gould's recordings of Mozart.
9.25 Gould the Accompanist
A performance of a Bach sonata for violin and keyboard. With Jaime Laredo (violin).
9.45 Hello, Hello. Are You There? People who took his calls remember how Gould used the phone obsessively to sustain intimacy and maintain distance.
10.00 Beethoven Piano Sonata in C minor, Op 13 (Pathetique)
10.15 Gould and the Idea of Radio. Gould's innovative approach to radio included the production of a number of artist portraits, including Stokowski, Casals and Schoenberg, plus the development of the idea of "contrapuntal radio" in The Solitude Trilogy, featured in tonight's Through the Night.
10.45 Sleepless in Toronto. A troubled mind, insomnia and strange nocturnal habits: an exploration of Gould's night-time.
11.10 Bach Goldberg Variations, BWV988 (1981 final recording)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
