I have not read GG's article on Barbara but will print it off now and
read it.  I adore Haydn more and more as I play his piano sonatas.  In
doing so I can see quite clearly how superior they are to almost all of
Woolfies.  GG was a natural fit for Haydn and that he did not record all
of the oeuvre is sad.

Oh what a relief that someone else gives a flying ----  about Gould's
Haydn. I have already begged anyone here who 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 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 doggone minute"
(Gouldian speak); Gould revisited Haydn first with 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?


  As for what Gould had in mind for "Barbra", he laid his cards on the
table: from High Fidelity Magazine May 1976 "Streisand As Schwarzkopf"
by Glenn Gould:


This is the second time I have submitted the Gould-Streisand article to
F Minor.
