RE: [F_minor] doubts
And if he had recorded that very lesson,
exemplifying his points, what a great unselfish
contribution it would have been by Professor Gould!

Hi all, just a very quick note. On the weekend I
was scrolling through some GG stuff on Youtube
when I listened to his whimsical playing of
Mozart (I think this was a very famous
theme/variation thing....) In any case, he was
chatting with someone and the guy says to GG,
"play it like Hollywood would like" and GG
breaks into your very typical, heard it a million times version.
Then he stops and says how boring this was and
plays it and explains it variation by variation
the way it appears on the recording. He said
that he went out of his way to dramatically
exaggerate the tempos to make it sound
fresh. He explained how he wanted to find a new
way of exploration. You should all listen to
him because frankly his logic was firm, not
crazy. He knew that it was risky but above all
he felt that in playing it this way he was
forcing an overly familiar theme to be looked at
in a completely new way. That's GG's insightful
genius and incredibly brave self confidence for you.
