Mary, please help me understand what you are talking about. Your
posting about the article "In your face, Glenn Gould" was on 7/08/08,
with the subject line "BACK TO BACH AND BELLYACHING". I have gone back
and reread all my on-list postings from there forward, and I do not see
anything in any of them that could be considered even remotely
offensive. I also don't see anything that should cause you to get
mistaken impressions about me....
7/22 in that same thread, my only posting was to say that I commend
Richard Egarr's recording of the Goldberg Variations. That was in
response to Singh's posting, not yours (and I was not aware that I was
even *expected* to respond to yours!). Have you listened to that Egarr
recording yourself? You didn't say, one way or the other, in your 7/08
posting where you were complaining about that Kahn article. And, how
should I or anyone else here be held responsible for things that Egarr
or the Kahns said about GG in print?
In September there were two postings by me about Keith Jarrett's
recording, which again have nothing to do with any of your comments.
In October my two postings were about piano vs harpsichord questions.
In November my single posting was to applaud a filmed piano performance
by Chico Marx.
In December my single posting was to point out that Gould's Bach was
heavily influenced by his encounters with Schoenberg's music and ideas.
I posted one time in February, only to say that GG's cadenza to the
Beethoven concerto #1 was published a long time ago in a magazine.
Last Wednesday I posted three sentences about playing Byrd/Gibbons on
harpsichord, where GG played them on piano.
And that is all, until yesterday's posting about that LA Times article.
I don't see where you are getting this "Sheriff" business, in reference
to me. I post on this discussion list very sporadically. When I do, I
try to speak (write) my opinions as clearly as I can, and always in
appreciation of Gould's work...both about its strengths and its possible
