His love affair with the microphone, which began in his teens, still runs strong. He still stands by his famous prediction that the concert hall is doomed and that the future lies in the recording studio. He has no regrets about abandoning the concert platform: 'it was a very unpleasant period. In the sense of one's responsibility towards the music it was not a difficult decision to take. It was something I did not take very seriously. There never was a time really when I felt that reciprocal thing that Rubinstein talks of. I was never aware of that. It was not a rewarding experience but ultimately an exhausting and futile one.'
We currently have several pages of Gould CDs in the Sony Classics reissues series (and we even have a DVD where you can watch him recording some of his famous Bach interpretations).
