  • Glenn Gould plays Bach - The Goldberg Variations, BMV 998

    39:20

    Description from Zenph's website:

    Glenn Gould's debut album of Bach's Goldberg Variations was recorded in June 1955. The Columbia LP quickly became one of the most revered piano recordings ever made and Gould became the most famous classical artist of the day. His exciting, unorthodox new way of playing Bach left listeners awestruck and critics around the world hailing him as a genius. But until recently this iconic album was limited by the dated recording technology of its time.

    On September 25, 2006, history was made again. Zenph Studios recorded its debut re-performance® to standing ovations in the CBC's famed Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto. The date would have been Glenn Gould's 74th birthday, and what a gift Zenph created to give his fans.

    The Zenph re-performance is a revelation in its clarity, depth, and vibrancy. Gould seems to play at an almost inhuman speed and yet with complete accuracy. The 30 variations dazzle the listener with their inventiveness and variety. As music historian and Gould biographer Kevin Bazzana writes in the CD's liner notes, Here, albeit with his trademark vocalizing no longer accompanying the performance, Gould's musical personality is unquestionably present...

  • Glenn Gould and Leonard Bernstein: Bachs Keyboard Concerto No. 1

    14:14

    This clip is absolutely sensational: as education, composition and in performance.

    Glenn Gould was 28 years old here.

    For the impatient, Gould's performance begins at 5:08, but I strongly encourage you to watch Leonard Bernstein's fascinating introduction.

    This film originally aired in 1960 on CBS Television as part of its Ford Presents series.

    The entire film in high quality (of which this clip is a small part) was painstakingly hunted down by YouTuber erp65 and his friends. It can be found here, and I urge you, I really DO urge you, to see it in its entirety:



    I have sought erp65's permission to cross-post, as a courtesy, but I have not yet heard back. Meanwhile, my abject enthusiasm got the better of me.

    This film has to be promulgated far and wide. This was erp65's entire intention here, and we owe him and his friends enormous thanks.

    Dans la musique des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles et des siècles précédents, on peut trouver des idées thématiques et des progressions harmoniques qui flottent librement d'un compositeur à l'autre ; parfois, des mouvements entiers ou même des compositions entières ont été adaptés et retravaillés ; et, certainement et le plus souvent, les compositeurs ont remodelé leurs propres matériaux pour les adapter à de nouvelles formes ou remplir de nouvelles fonctions. La majorité des concertos pour clavier de bach tombent dans cette dernière catégorie en tant que réécritures de concertos déjà existants, surtout pour le violon (cliquez sur le i en haut de la fenêtre pour les entendre).

    C'est là une des raisons principales de la domination du clavier sur les œuvres, car la partie précédemment attribuée au violon solo est maintenant confiée à la main droite du claviériste, et la main gauche, comme s'il s'agissait d'un autre instrument, joue une partie de basse. En fait, l'utilisation par Bach du matériel musical contenu dans ces œuvres ne s'est pas arrêtée aux concertos eux-mêmes. On en retrouve des mouvements retravaillés et réorchestrés et remplissant une fonction tout à fait nouvelle dans les cantates d'église qu'il a écrites pour des occasions ultérieures.

    En 1837, un célèbre virtuose du clavier a interprété le Concerto pour clavecin no 1 en ré mineur de J.S. Bach. Dans un avis de concert, publié par la suite, un journaliste musical influent avait les remarques suivantes à faire : Je voudrais parler des nombreuses pensées qui ont été éveillées dans mon esprit par cette noble œuvre... Croira-t-on que sur les étagères de la Singakademie de Berlin, à laquelle le vieux Welter a légué sa bibliothèque, au moins sept de ces concertos, et un nombre incalculable d'autres compositions de Bach, en manuscrit, sont soigneusement rangés ? Peu de gens le savent, mais ils y reposent malgré tout. N'est-il pas temps, ne serait-il pas utile pour la nation allemande, de publier une édition parfaite de l'œuvre complète de Bach ?

    L'idée devrait être envisagée et les paroles d'un expert pratique, qui parle de cette entreprise à la page 76 du volume actuel de la Neue Zeitschrift (für Musik), serviraient de devise. Il dit : La publication des œuvres de Sébastien Bach est une entreprise que j'espère voir bientôt se réaliser, une entreprise qui me réjouit et qui bat pour le grand et noble art de ce père de l'harmonie. Cherchez simplement .

    Le virtuose qui a interprété le Concerto était Felix Mendelssohn. Le journaliste musical était Robert Schumann. L'expert cité était Ludwig Van Beethoven. La citation est tirée d'une lettre que Beethoven a écrite à l'éditeur de musique Hoffmeister en 1801. Voilà pour ce qui est d'établir la validité et la stature des concertos pour clavier de Bach en tant que grandes œuvres d'art musical.

  • Glenn Gould chooses a piano at Steinway & Sons

    4:06

    If there is no doubt great acoustics can enhance the quality of a musical experience, a good performance cannot occur without the use of a great instrument. That is why we have the chance to witness the highly sensitive and famous pianist Glenn Gould headed to the Steinway & Sons piano shop on New-York's 57th street to choose a new companion for his upcoming recording sessions and concert.

    A joyful clip extracted from the short documentary Glenn Gould - Off the Record directed by Wolf Koening and Roman Kroitor in 1959.

    Original documentary by National Film Broad Production, presented by the CBC.

  • Glenn Gould: Beethoven - Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Largo Op. 37

    10:50

    Glenn Herbert Gould (September 25, 1932 -- October 4, 1982) was a Canadian pianist who became one of the best-known and most celebrated classical pianists of the 20th century. He was particularly renowned as an interpreter of the keyboard music of Johann Sebastian Bach. His playing was distinguished by remarkable technical proficiency and capacity to articulate the polyphonic texture of Bach's music. Gould rejected most of the standard Romantic piano literature and, after his adolescence, avoided Liszt, Schumann, and Chopin. Although his recordings were dominated by Bach, Gould's repertoire was diverse, including works by Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Brahms, pre-Baroque composers such as Jan Sweelinck, and such 20th-century composers as Paul Hindemith and Arnold Schoenberg. Gould was well known for various eccentricities, from his unorthodox musical interpretations and mannerisms at the keyboard to aspects of his lifestyle and personal behavior. He stopped giving concerts at the age of 31 to concentrate on studio recording and other projects. Gould was also known as a writer, composer, conductor, and broadcaster. He was a prolific contributor to musical journals, in which he discussed music theory and outlined his musical philosophy. His career as a composer was less distinguished. His output was minimal and many projects were left unfinished. There is evidence that, had he lived beyond 50, he intended to abandon the piano and devote the remainder of his career to conducting and other projects. As a broadcaster, Gould was prolific. His output ranged from television and radio broadcasts of studio performances to musique concrète radio documentaries about life in the Canadian wilderness...

  • Glenn Gould plays Gibbons: Lord Salisbury Pavane & Galliard

    24:52

    Edited captions are available for this item. Select 'English', not 'English (auto-generated)'.

    There are four recordings by Gould of the Lord Salisbury Pavan, and the first three of these are acccompanied by the Galliard.

    0:00 remarks on Gibbons from 'Chemins de la Musique', 1974.
    Massey Hall, Toronto, January 17, 1956:
    0:56 Pavan
    4:32 Galliard
    This earliest recording we have of Gould's Gibbons is straightforward and unornamented.
    New York, Columbia recording, August 1, 1968:
    6:16 Pavan
    10:20 Galliard
    Some ornamentation, especially in section 2 of the Pavan, and quite a bit of 'strumming' of chords.
    Toronto, Radio Broadcast, December 26, 1968:
    12:11 Pavan
    19:10 Galliard
    Only a few months later (though I cannot rule out that these could be outtakes from the Columbia sessions), and there is a new conception of the piece: the ornamentation is now profuse. Even the written out ornaments are modified. Each section of the Pavan is repeated with contrasting dynamics and ornaments.
    Toronto, 'Chemins de la Musique', Television, 1974:
    20:53 Pavan
    Some abrupt and pointillistic eighth notes to begin, but this idea is not carried through.
