that's very interesting.  i sensed the same " i am not feeling comfortable with 
this "  feeling when he did the brahms 1 with bernstein.    obviously a totally 
alien use of the hands for a  purely  " bach-ian " pianist. that is, one living 
with very few extreme stretches for a long period. .

    current thread of conversation

As always, please try to keep it Gould-related.

In Wondrous Strange, I recall Bazzana saying that Scriabian's sonata #1
(opus #1?  Something #1) was considered one of the hardest piano pieces
out there.  And noted that Gould had several splices in his recording,
implying that they there were there because of mistakes and not artistic
choices, though he didn't explain why he came to that conclusion.
