Speaking of strange tastes in singers apart from Barbara The Foghorn, do we have any recorded reactions from Pet Clarke ? Also utterly insignificant, but I reckon it must have been flattering for both of them to be mentioned by one of the greatest musicians in our time, even one had only been used for a satirical piece.
I am sure Mrs Quicksand has written an autobiography but it will rather snow in hell before I read that and pity all the trees in BC that had to be felled for that nonsense.
Personal tastes are different, but praising Barbara The Forghorn went just too far. Then again GG had a particular and unique taste, not just in music

> Oh what a relief that someone else gives a flying ---- about Gould's Haydn. I have already begged anyone here who can get their hands on a copy of "Gould's Remarkable Haydn Series" Piano Quarterly Vol. 31 no. 121 Winter 1982-83 by Joseph Banowetz to please send me a photocopy. I'll pay postage...I'll send you a free cd of whatever you want (within reason) in return. No, that's going too far. I offer a free cd of Gerard Lesne and Ensemble Il Seminario musicale recorded at Basilique Saint-Hippolyte, Thonon-les-Bains, Haute-Savoie, France, April 1988 "Musique Sacree pour Contralto, Cordes et Basse Continue" in fair trade for a copy of the Joseph Banowetz article. You'll just have to twig the composer and the compositions.
> People crow and crow ('cause it's facile?) that Gould rerecorded The Goldberg Variations ... well hang on "just a doggone minute" (Gouldian speak); Gould revisited Haydn firstwith his "slowhand" technique and I'm so glad that he did. What gorgeous play he has to offer; this is really a sublime Gould who feels at home with the composer. Haydn had all the moves that Gould could respect and bounce off of. It sort of drives me crazy with jealousy. I have to laugh out loud in pleasure and utter ... what is it exactly? Agreement? Amusement? Fulfillment.
> As for what Gould had in mind for "Barbra", he laid his cards on the table: fromHigh Fidelity Magazine May 1976 "Streisand As Schwarzkopf" by Glenn Gould:
