The last question "but is it as impressive as the same thing done in public ?" reminds me of the Bible verse where Philip asks Jesus :"Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us" and Jesus replied, "Have I been so long time with you, and yet has thou not known me, Philip?"
Have you listened to Glenn Gould recordings and seen him perform "live" (VHS, DVDs, etc.)so long, that you don't know the answer to that question?
