Salut Michael, Long time (too long) no hear from! I have to agree with what you've written even taking into account that Hewitt's little concert on that little video is a sort of "doodling" (would that I could 'doodle' like Hewitt). Ms. Hewitt is probably the "very good juilliard student-like interpretation" Standard Bearer par excellence - note perfect and polite - shielding the thousands from unwelcome idiosycrasies or what you call "the magic". 

In the meantime, in a little corner of the Conservatory, there was an organist/pianist named Daniel Fuchs who found his way into J.S. Bach's head: recorded in 2009 on a Steinway 109 572 ...

very eye opening. i had always thought that there was a special life in cd318. and that it's hair- trigger action, with the total lack of key- bobbing after being struck, had a lot to do with gould's results. but no. after hearing hewitt playing cd318 , with a total absence of that incredible glenn gould spark, but a very good juilliard student-like interpretation, ( bach international winner ? ),   i realized that i was wrong.      the magic,    ( in this case, not mozart ! ), was gould himself.
