The short bio at http://www.sonyclassical.com/artists/gould/bio.html says
that it was Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto.

He played this concerto in 1946 as his solo debut with a Royal Conservatory

I don't know if GG's later recorded version of this concerto is anything
like the Schnabel version he so loved... Any takers? :->
