Ο Γκλεν Γκουλντ σε μια μαγική στιγμή από το πρώτο κονσέρτο για πιάνο και ορχήστρα του Μπαχ. Στο πόντιουμ ο Κάραγιαν. H εκτέλεση αυτή δεν κυκλοφορεί σε cd!

have SO friggin many favorite sections in this (actually in the entire 8 minute recording) I can barely get to the end. Wacthing him play this is so wild. Currently Im obsessing with 55 to about 100 and 110- 136 (unbelievable control) and 205-226 or even clear to the end. Should probably just say the entire thing. Actually bought the CD recently and I go jammin down the road twice a week with that thing going non stop. He actually works up to getting airborn those last 3 bounces

I haven't commented on a video in years, but this video is such a refreshing reminder of how Bach is nothing like the general public perception of Baroque music as being emotionally flat and boring. Gould was unparalleled in drawing out the dynamic movement and emotive character in Bach. Publicly he could be a truly pompous jackass, but I don't sense that many people really minded, probably because his genius in Baroque was unique and deservedly legendary.

(An excerpt from "An Ode to Glenn Gould"): His hands! I must speak of his hands... The long, slender well-manicured fingers... Each sparking a 'supply of energy' all it's own... They were capable of so much magic... More than any magician's have ever wrought! Ah yes, they were so important to him... And to the world of music, and now... Down through invisible halls of time, to me! When they play, the world seems to stop... And I am being visited by the angels... For that while.

I believe it was in this performance that Leonard Bernstein introduced Gould as a legend playing a legend, because of Bach's extreme ageand Gould's extreme youth. Bach had died over 200 years before this performance.
