Scarlatti- Harpsichord sonata No.435: he wrote 555 and I used to have them complete on 34 CDs: some devastating brilliance in these works, manic and ecstatic and based on juxtaposition and play of related ideas (like the Messiaen below, two centuries later); the harpsichordist shows some great poise and feel for the rhythms, really in the moment.

Messiaen- Vingt regards No.6 is very virtuosic piano writing in a semi-dissonant modern idiom: I used to play five of the 20 movements myself, though hardly at the right tempos, and it was one of the works included in my bit of lecturing a few years ago, one of the greatest for piano of the century: the pianist is really into it and knows the idiom...

Bach- a suite or partita, I can’t remember which it is- Glen Gould the Canadian pianist who perhaps explores the boundary between genius and madness, quite possessed: I like the bit where he gets up for a moment when he’s not happy…

That is the 2nd partita, I think was taken from 32 films about Glenn Gould.

Here is Gould at a surprisingly romantic moment  ::)

Yes, YouTube has become a veritable "den of iniquity" for me, my Favorites now number 172!  :o And that's not even counting opera for the most part or pianists. It's astounding and so heartening to see the offerings continue to increase.

Lately I've been loading some Mahler there I had around, to spread the goodness.

Probably my favourite video on Youtube is Leonard Rose and Glenn Gould playing the third Beethoven cello Sonata.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gi2hXJ3qx34

Tim Janof on the partnership:
Quote
One of Leonard Rose's frequent sonata partners was pianist Glenn Gould. Rose loved Gould's playing. "I still think his piano sound is one of the most beautiful piano sounds I've ever heard in my life!" One can watch them play together in a video of the Beethoven A Major Sonata. Watching them play together, one is struck by the electricity of their partnership, despite the fact that they were very different as performers. While Rose played with minimal excess motion and perfect poise -- the straight man -- Gould swayed, conducted, and muttered throughout the entire performance, but the combination is magical.

During the filming of that sonata, the producers asked Rose if he had memorized the music. The music stand was difficult to film around and they were hoping to get rid of it. Rose did have the piece memorized, but he thought that Gould would probably need to play from music. Gould said, "Oh, Leonard, do you want to play the piece from memory? I'll have it from memory tomorrow." And sure enough he did. Rose asked Gould how he did it, and Gould told him that he would lie in bed with the music and memorize it from there. "Glenn definitely is a kind of genius…."

To say that Glenn Gould was eccentric is an understatement, but apparently there is a likely medical explanation for some of his quirks. According to Rose's daughter, Barbara, who works in the medical field:

"Glenn Gould was deranged, but he had fibromyalgia, which couldn't be diagnosed at the time. He couldn't tell whether it was hot or cold, so he'd walk around in the summer with his great big coat on. My father would suggest that he take it off, and Glenn would say, 'But it's cold.' My father would reply, 'It's 95 degrees, Glenn.' Glenn couldn't feel it, which was very frustrating for him."


Robert Battey on the subject:
Quote
Two filmed performances of Rose have been available recently: the Beethoven A major sonata with Glenn Gould (Sony) and the Beethoven C minor and Brahms C major trios (VAI). The Gould collaboration is truly amazing, one of the great sonata performances ever captured on film. Rose's posture and approach to the instrument were emulated by countless others, not just his students, and here we can study his playing in its prime. We can also see the reserve and formality he always exhibited, and the complete focus on producing the highest-quality music possible, with no extraneous showmanship. The combination of the two titanic artistic personalities strikes sparks; the youthful genius playing (by memory) at the piano, singing, conducting, and generally acting bizarre, and the mature cello master, seated behind and above, looking down on his colleague with avuncular dignity. Somehow the performance clicks on every level.
Geologist.

I'm watching that video of that Mussorgsky/Ravel - Pictures at an Exhibition (Salonen).  Is that a double orchestra or something because, despite the extra forces that I now know the piece calls for, the orchestra itself sure seemed bigger than normal.
