As I'm well past 60 & spent
8 yrs getting 2 degrees in music
& "discovered" GG
during the Nixon administration
(the only good thing i can
think of regarding tricky)
prior to that there was no
Bach interpreter other than
Bach & Tureck went together
like salt & pepper
i had the records & she was
my muse until Gould came
on the scene
there was not anyone else
associated w/bach
not in new york or cincinnati
Tureck was my model as
i was growing up & later
as a teacher it was
GG all the way
w/a bit here & there of Tureck
This has been a wonderful
