Staccato clarity July 3 2012
By Ralph Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Anyone who loves Glenn Gould in Bach will want to own this disc. The sound is somewhat clangourous but cleaned-up mono whereby the orchestra is scratchy but the piano emerges sharply enough in a manner redolent of the harpsichord but with the tonal colouring afforded by a concert grand. The joy of Gould's playing derives from how he retains sonority while articulating so percussively and at such high speed. His interpretation conveys his sheer delight in the spirit of the music; as ever, even at the comparatively tender age of 25, he is humming away to provide a vocal obbligato underlay. I don't find that too distracting; in fact it's rather endearing. The grandeur of the opening Toccata in Partita No.6 provides an index to whether you respond to Gould's style; if you don't like it, don't bother in general. There is a kind of hieratic certainty to his playing which does not preclude warmth or subtlety of his phrasing - but you know you are on a journey and linked to the cosmic wheel.
