Yes Glenn Gould was eccentric("Mozart lived too long"), his playing can
grate on some people's nerves and he hummed, laughed during the live
recordings. So what? That sort of eccentricity I can live with when I
listen to the transpositions of the Englis Suites. What I can't abide is
saying his renditions are the worst of any player. His sort of
intellectualism is what is missing in today's musical world.
