    I've been comparing the interpretations of each of these performances for these absolutely lovely pieces that I'm hearing for the first time. For Baroque, I tend to prefer the sound of period instruments that are authentic to the time and eschew modern interpretations on modern instruments, but I really do like the warm, emotional touch Gould and Laredo bring to the music. The same goes for the Gould's Goldberg Variations, there's something very soulful he puts into the music that makes it very approachable (in my opinion) but I think of both interpretations as just being different with their own qualities.

    As for the pieces themselves, it's business as usual with Bach. Absolutely brilliant and beautiful. Some of the fugues in here are really mindblowing.

    One of the best Bruckner sets. Highlights of the cycle are 5th,6th and 7th symphonies.

    Found another LP at the local Salvation Army store; mint condition, paid $1 for it. Before there was Edward MacDowell, Charles Ives, Scott Joplin, or George Gershwin, there was Louis Moreau Gottschalk (1829-1869), the original American composer; and in his piano music you can hear just a hint of the many varieties of American classical music of the piano genre: MacDowell's Romantic European foundation; Ives' spirit of innovation and experimentation; Joplin and Gershwin's reliance upon African-American and/or Latin-American influences.
