RE: [F_minor] Under thirty crowd?

You have already taken those first few steps by posting here.  We try not to judge posts, but to respond to points we either agree or disagree with or just something that moved us about a recent listen to GG.  We talk mostly about his music but I also enjoy discussing his radio documentaries.  There are no perfectly correct answers about GG any more than there are about music in general.  

To honor GG's legacy one should listen to him, read his words and the opinions of others and grow up with them.  You'll develop your own voice over time and you might change your mind several times.

Glad to see you post.

Subject: [F_minor] Under thirty crowd?

I started subscribing to this mailing list a few years back because as a young Glenn Gould fan with an amateur music background and no real friends who have the same passion for Gould or even classical music in general, I wanted to be part of a group who could at least in writing pass on some knowledge and insight on the life and work of this fascinating man.  I don't really know any of you who are the main participants on this forum, but it seems that you may possibly have a few years on me just in the manner you articulate your ideas.  I often feel I would like to contribute my opinion on some of these threads, but worry my response would appear naïve or unintelligent.  My real concern I think at this point is, as one of Glenn Gould's biggest fans in the under-thirty age group, is if I, as well as the seemingly anonymous crowd of youngsters who also have a passion for Gould, don't make an effort to demand to be mentored by those who have perhaps had ties and first hand experience with him, fifty years from now the musical styling of this 20th century artist could fall out of the radar of even the minority of the public.  My question is, what steps do I take in order to help carry on the legacy of my ever-favorite hero?
