I would call it musicianship rather than pianism, though pianism is certainly a part of it. With the control capable in a recording studio, Glenn Gould was able to give us a better shot at understanding exactly what it was he was trying to communicate. And this he did with the clarity and control only possible in a recording studio. And so, I think that it is more impressive than what can be done in public, which generally seems to me a show, a kind of circus. |
But I could be wrong.
