By A Customer on December 28, 2000
This is an excellent video for anyone embarking on a journey through Gould's music & life. The first in a series of videos Gould made with interviewer Bruno Monsaingeon it highlights the diversity of Gould's genius and also shares, through interviews with performers who worked with Gould, bits of his personality and method of working. With pieces ranging in scope from fugues to rhapsodies and symphonies this collection highlights Gould's passion for not only the music he chose to record but also the genre's and composers as well. Admittedly Gould can be a bit technical in his discussions of form, but this does not take away from the film's overall appeal...the music itself. A must for any Gould fan, scholar or enthusiast and a delight for those interested in the insights and work of a pure genius. Highly recommended to anyone who loves piano music as well as classical history in general.

This series of VHSs are amazing (certainly for Gould fans) and it is incredible that they are out of print. When they were first released I was taking my time to purchase them. I managed to get a few before they went out of print. I should have been paying better attention. Hopefully the producer will release them on DVD soon-a bit late in my opinion.
