[f_minor] Glenn Gould's humming

I like the humming too, and it's so interesting that he sometimes sounds
out of key!
I noticed that some current classical performers make odd harrumphing
breathing noises while performing (I witnessed this in a pianist and a conductor)
and I am wondering if our tolerance for GG's extra sounds on record could have
encouraged these fellows in this regard. Or has it become a fashionable
eccentricity to exhibit such noises? In both instances I found it curious
yet unappealing; in the case of the conductor, I left early!!!
Regarding a previous comment about GG's editing his work, my impression was that
he defended the right to edit and loved to play at it for fun to demonstrate a point
but in reality he actually didn't edit his pieces much...at the most tacking on a different
beginning or ending now and then, or replacing a bad note. Anyone agree?

Gould's humming is hot -- I think it is his way of
making love to the music. I love listening to it!

oboy, we haven't had a big
screaming fight between
the Hummists and the Anti-Hummists in years!
Last time, the Antis were
calling for a new
release of all GG's piano works with the humming
I'm a 100 percent Hummist.
For me, it's an
indispensable additional passionate dimension of GG's
