Hi Michael and others,

I haven't seen/listened to that particular CD yet but will check it out. 

I was always uncomfortable with the idea of GG's name/music associated with the "Silence.." and "Hannibal" movies 'cause I don't think he would have
 wanted to be in such creepy things, none of which I've been able to watch completely through. I just can't stomach that kind of violent imagery. What does everyone else think?
As for him being my fave pianist, when I heard his Bach Concerto 1 in D Minor
 with Bernstein I was hooked. I never tire of listening to his interpretations of Bach, Brahms, Byrd, Gibbons, and Sibelius (I've yet to hear all his Beethoven). It's the phrasing, tempo, and beautiful clarity of his playing that I find so mesmerizing. Who comes close, in their own way, since? I'm not that well versed in all this (help me out) but just from the radio I've heard some nice playing by Hewitt, Lortie and Ax.
But maybe for us it'll aways be Glenn...think of that Carly Simon song "Nobody does it better..."
Cheers, Elaine

just an observation. recently i hopefully and expectantly listened to various 
recordings.  good ones, i guess.  michelangeli"s lugano recital, (  a dvd ), 
 serkin's 80'th vienna recital, late beethoven, ( vhs ),  cortot's schumann, cd, 
 arrau's chopin grand
 fantasie on polish airs, and brendel's farewell recital in 
hanover.     well,  frankly,  i felt , disappointed, and after a while,  that i 
was just listening to another typical 3 rd year juilliard student's 
recital.------------------------  then i put on , in desperation, the cd " gg at 
the movies".    there was all the difference.  give it a listen. and maybe you 
can explain it .
