‘At live concerts I feel demeaned, like a vaudevillian.’

Glenn Gould  — Holiday, 1964

  1. Compelling interview with Glenn Gould. What an interesting and unique style of playing he had, particularly the low level seating so that at times his chin was almost level with the keyboard. Enjoyed that immensely. Thank you Malan!
