I met Glenn Gould several times while I was working as a security guard at College Park in Toronto around 1981. He was quiet but I got to sit and listen to some of his practices. He was brilliant and gracious. Wonderful man! I sat in the balcony while he played and hummed to of my first times listening to classical music

@Rosina Ibragimova drugs for many maladies, some of them imaginary, poor nutriton, no aerobic exercise. 'Not recommended for a long life.


@Sorcerer Stone i'm certain that Gould would run through pieces that were new to him and work on any tricky bits as necessary - many friends and neighbours have talked about hearing him play piano in his apartment, and i've seen some scores of his that were really marked-up with fingerings and dynamic cues. in addition , during the years Gould performed live professionally (mid 1950's - 1964), his repertoire was not extensive and consisted of a lot of stuff he'd practised plenty of times as a student. He has said in interviews that he didn't like to talk or think about technique very much ("it's like asking a centipede which leg it will move first"). I think many of Gould's fellow pianists found his tempos to be excessive & unorthodox, and others found his playing illuminating.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing

@broscosmoline у меня тоже с детства был хороший учитель из школы Нейгауза примерно в такой технике. Каждый звук рождается как импровизация! Играть только по нотам! Играть как композитор сочиняет как Шуберт!


@Игорь Зверев его техника была неортодоксальной. Его манера игры была продолжением того, как играл его учитель, и этот учитель учил его только с раннего возраста. Думаю, идея заключалась в том, чтобы пальцы касались клавиш, насколько это возможно. Большинство пианистов играют со скрученными пальцами, прижимая кончики пальцев к клавишам.
