Glenn GOULD's PIANO CHAIR

The famous 'overused' chair on which the excentric pianist Glenn Gould kept all his remarkable BACH recordings at New York.

 

When do I produce a fine performance or composition on my piano chair? When I haven't touched the piano keys for days or holidays, pregnant by new expression. I don't need a high skill training of my piano fingers (Fingerfertigkeit) but just like Glenn Gould: after a time of incubation and mental conceptualization of the music that you'll play. Gould: "The best scores to play at the piano aren't the nineteenth Beethoven, Ravel or Rachmaninov, but just the scores from the sixteenth century at the virginal!"
