Thank you Pat for poiting out this Perahia quote. Given the fact that 
Perahia is such a prominent Bach interpreter himself, that is praise indeed.

> Beautiful indeed! Here is a site with Murray Perahia commenting on Gould:

> which I will place here:
> "Gould revealed us a thing that had not been perceived by anybody else 
> in the Bach's compositions (...) and simultaneously he taught us that 
> the role of the executor was not to serve but to provoke the art and 
> thus to reveal not only the most beautiful but also the most difficult 
> to bear."
