Gould's playing is very great, especially Bach's music. His Goldberg Variations, Well-Tempered Clavier, and anything other keyboard music of Bach is exquisitely played, and his touch and rhthym is perfect for Bach's music. His idiosyncrancies are unique as well; he hummed a lot while playing, and had some disorder that made him very interested in only one certain subject, in this case Bach's music.

Actually, though he admired Bach to the point of worship (as do I Wink), his favorite composer was Orlando Gibbons, an English Renaissance composer whose anthems, viol consorts, and keyboard works are beautiful examples of music of that era.

So, that's why you can't talk properly? Wink

It's quite amazing, because when I heard Gould, he could talk properly. And it seems, this syndrom is not harmful at all Rolling Eyes , Rachmaninov also had it, and both of them died of other reasons than this syndrom.

Gould could also be considered as a speed demon, too. His recording of the inventios is incredibly fast, yet very well articulated and voiced. I'd like to know how he did that. >_>

Yeah I've heard his Mozart Sonata in C (K. 545) and he plays the first movement faster than most people do. Also, very nice articulation and voicing.
But he plays Rondo Alla Turka slower than everyone else does, and his recording is amazing.
I'm sorry but I just have to make as many people listen to it as possible. I've never heard such a good rendition of Rondo Alla Turka.

Heh, virtuoso, he won't answer. Wink

I used to think Gould was stupid, but now I love him so much, when I heard more of his interpretations.

His art is, indeed, miraculous and admirable, and I would never attribute his genius to Asperger's syndrome, for that would be quite a profanity Wink.

This actually comes to a surprise to me, all of the recordings that I've heard from him (mostly the partitas) were at perfect speed, for my likings. But I haven't heard enough to fully judge.
