Glenn Gould

The great Glenn Gould practicing Bach Partita #2, from the “Art of the Piano” documentary. So much to note: he’s playing in his bathrobe, he has his legs crossed while he’s using the pedal,  his dog, his “singing”, the  coffee cup and saucer and what looks like a big old 60’s ashtray on the piano, the very low bench, and that terrific moment at 1:24 where he uses his LH.  Gould died too early He would have been 77 this past Friday.
