Gould, Bernstein & Bach

Here’s a great little gem of a video featuring famously eccentric Canadian pianist Glenn Gould performing Bach’s Keyboard Concerto #1 in D minor along with Leonard Bernstein conducting the orchestra.  Bernstein introduces the performance with a brief talk about interpretation in musical performance, quite instructive and fascinating in itself.  Gould performs with precision and clarity in this 1960 television broadcast.
