I am reading Otto Friedrich’s book on Glenn Gould. I am listening to the Goldberg Variations. There are advantages to not being able to fall asleep.
Are you listening to the recording that features his two very different interpretations of these pieces, one recorded in 1955, the other in 1981? I still can’t decide which I like best. Both are quite brilliant, I think.
I have only just started reading Rameau’s Niece, and find it wonderful. A great book!
Hi, Lynn. As you can see, I have been awol from this blog, but I think I like the 1955 recording better than just about any piano recording of anything ever. I am sort of addicted to it, actually.
I am just reading The New Yorkers and it made me remember the years I lived there. Do you still remember your filipino nurse in lenox hill , it’s me and I am so HAPPY for you. I wish I can see you , it would be an honor to meet you again.
