Agreed.  By the way, last week, one evening, I listened to all of "The idea of the North" on my computer.  It was wonderful.

I have a feeling you're jesting, Michael. If not, to call all the works by Prokofiev, Boulez, Godowsky and Sorabji garbage is not very helpful and certainly not true. I hope that this is not the old case of equating simple with good and complicated with bad. Gould certainly didn't do that. It's all a question of being able to make the music speak and not make it into technical excercises. But even the showing off can be fun
-- GG certainly knew that! Sad to say I can't play any really difficult work, but that doesn't mean I can't take pleasure in listening to them.
