Hi folks,

There were several interesting Gouldian events to go to in Toronto recently. I managed to get to the BACHanalia event at Koerner Hall
and I found several performances were quite mesmerizing: Howard Levy doing a Bach flute sonata on the harmonica;
Sylvain Blassel doing part of the Goldbergs on harp; Dave Young Trio doing Oscar Peterson's Salute to Bach; and at the very end, Inventions and Sinfonia pieces "played" by the piano itself through "Piano Invention" technology which reads the way a pianist
performed a piece and performs it, minus the performer! It was impressive, and with a replica of GG's chair at the piano, it was eerie but beautiful.
