Glenn Gould and J.S. Bach Concerto No. 7

Glenn Gould [1932–1982], with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, some time in the late 1950s, plays the Bach Harpsichord Concerto No. 7 in G minor, BWV 1058, which Johann Sebastian Bach [1685–1750] completed in 1738. Gould is one of my favourite pianists and an individual I would have liked to meet; whatever particularities he had (and all of us have a few) are easily forgiven because of his musical abilities, which I consider as phenomenal and his intellectual ideas, which I consider as humane. Further thoughts on Glenn Herbert Gould, which have remained consistent and unchanged over the years, can be found [here].
