I know it is a cliche to state the obvious: this is infact Gould's very last recording... but, what a final recording indeed! There is something about it - a mysticism I've always felt, as if Gould knows it is going to be his last. He plays completely differently here than on the last Goldberg recording. On that, he sounds as though he is making a deliberate statement - an intentional modification to his former recording of the Goldberg Variations. On this recording of Strauss' op. 5, it reminds me of the organic youthfullness of Goulds' first Goldberg recording, made some 30 years before. And, he is playing a very youthful, sort of innocent Sonata which Strauss wrote at age 16. Strange, how the music sounds as full circle as it reads on paper. The finality of this recording is stunning, a bit of a wonder, it is not Gould in a state of deep meditative introspection, rather, he is just playing. He sounds at peace with himself.

I am not going to discuss the humming, the gould 'sound/noise', it bothers you or not, I personally feel more intimate with his playing, like he is more 'here'.

The 10mn Largo of the 5 pieces op 3, he is mystery/Mastery of immobile sound, of vanishing sound (except the faster midle part).At 7:33, the music (and the way Gould plays it) vanishes, the notes being like a faint murmur of music so that the main theme can come back.

Somehow it has the same kind of spirit as in the byrd/gibbons pieces by Gould. Not sure it's valid in term of musicology or anything else, but it's how I feel it.

The Sonata is pretty virtuose and use the pom pom pom pom them of Beethoven 5th Symphony.

Probably not very significant piano pieces, Master by both a pianist capable of the utmost digitality and the most introspection. The largo, to me, is worth the CD.

Strauss only wrote this one piano sonata (at age 14 I believe) but it makes for good listening and better yet, good playing. Strongly influenced by Beethoven's Fifth Symphony (da da da dough)Well, you know what I mean.
Slow movement very romantic and lovely. Enjoy!

The great pianist's unique performance of this R. Strauss Sonata (who especially is renown with J.S. Bach's works) indeed is worth to listen!
