Glenn Gould

Data di nascita: 25. Settembre 1932
Data di morte: 4. Ottobre 1982

Glenn Herbert Gould è stato un pianista, compositore, clavicembalista e organista canadese.

È ricordato soprattutto per le sue registrazioni di musiche di Bach, ma anche di Beethoven, Mozart e del repertorio pianistico del XX secolo. La sua tecnica eccezionale, la sua sensibilità, l'assoluta modernità nella rilettura ed interpretazione dei classici ne fanno a pieno titolo uno dei più grandi pianisti di ogni tempo.

Smise di esibirsi in concerto nel 1964, dedicandosi completamente alle registrazioni in studio per il resto della sua carriera.

Frasi Glenn Gould

„The trouble begins when we start to be so impressed by the strategies of our systematized thought that we forget that it does relate to an obverse, that it is hewn from negation, that it is but very small security against the void of negation which surrounds it.“

—  Glenn Gould

Glenn Gould Reader p5
Contesto: The trouble begins when we start to be so impressed by the strategies of our systematized thought that we forget that it does relate to an obverse, that it is hewn from negation, that it is but very small security against the void of negation which surrounds it. And when that happens, when we forget these things, all sorts of mechanical failures begin to disrupt the functions of the human personality. When people who practice an art like music become captives of those positive assumptions of system, when they forget to credit that happening against negation which system is, and when they become disrespectful of the immensity of negation compared to system — then they put themselves out of reach of that replenishment of invention upon which creative ideas depend, because invention is, in fact, a cautious dipping into the negation that lies outside system from a position firmly ensconced in system.

„I think that if I were required to spend the rest of my life on a desert island, and to listen to or play the music of any one composer during all that time, that composer would almost certainly be Bach.“

—  Glenn Gould

Gramophone
Contesto: I think that if I were required to spend the rest of my life on a desert island, and to listen to or play the music of any one composer during all that time, that composer would almost certainly be Bach. I really can't think of any other music which is so all-encompassing, which moves me so deeply and so consistently, and which, to use a rather imprecise word, is valuable beyond all of its skill and brilliance for something more meaningful than that -- its humanity.
