James Campbell and Glenn Gould Play Debussy

On July 18 the Festival of the Sound in Parry Sound, Ontario begins its new season. The festival was founded in 1979 by Anton Kuerti and since 1985 it has been under the artistic direction of James Campbell. During the winter months Jim is a Professor of clarinet at Indiana University but in the summer he gets to give free rein to his imagination. Apart from the beautiful location and its wonderful concert hall the festival regularly presents some of the finest concerts available anywhere. There is lots of chamber music but plenty of jazz too. If you haven't been to the Festival of the Sound make plans to get there as soon as possible. You won't be disappointed.

Our video this week features a very young James Campbell making music with Glenn Gould. Glenn Gould playing Debussy? This is a rarity. Debussy's First Rhapsody for Clarinet and Piano.

Paul E. Robinson
