A little fun for the day. Colin Marshall’s commentary following the video is well worth a read. Actually, read before watching. It’s better that way.

For the adventuresome, scroll down to Glenn Gould’s “remarks” on Bach. He’s mad as a hatter, but genius. He sounds like he knows what he’s talking about, but I’m never sure. Or at least I’m never sure I know what he’s talking about. One thing for sure, he interprets Bach like no other. Unparalleled.

    That is pretty cool. Thanks for sharing – I would never have found this on my own.

      Glad you enjoyed it, Kristin. I just discovered Open Culture myself. Everything I’ve looked for on it, I’ve liked.

    Glenn Gould died in 1982. His Goldberg Variations were a masterwork.

    I’d never heard that Cantatta by J.S. Bach, nor Glen Gould speak. Thank you very much, P.J.!
