Hello Marco,

Yes, that is one of the works that Gould disliked but at the same time 
was deeply moved by Richter's performance of. Richter asked Monsaingeon 
if his playing had convinced Gould of the work's merrit -- that was HIS 
only concern. Also Weissenberg (Rachmaninov) and Brendel (Mozart) are 
pianists who Gould felt played well in works he didn't like.
