Nice to hear Glenn Gould and Maria Joao Pires within a short time. Gould playing Bach is a lesson and a treat. It's like watching a Robert Altman flick and being able to hear, understand and relate to both the foreground dialog AND ALL THE BACKGROUND CONVERSATIONS. Doesn't always make for the most mellifluous sound but the sense of heightened perception is always special.

Ms. P playing the start of Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 16 makes me think it begins too fast, trivializing the work as if it was for kids under 4 years old.

LOL! Gould plays it twice as fast! Tempi people. Tempi! But she's a pleasure to listen to at any pace.

P.S.

Ms. Bergen's "Discuss This Playlist" leads to an empty comment page - I guess the ultimate goal of preventing feedback dialog rather than "listener" votes.

Speaking of missing feedback, anyone know what happened to Mr. Meltzer (hope I got the spelling close)?
