"At least we ended the piece at the same time." comedy gold!

After Bach
Alan Gilbert: “Before talking about the Schoenberg, I’d like to say what an honor it is to have been part of Manny’s first-ever performance of Bach’s D-minor Keyboard Concerto.”
Emanuel Ax: “That is very kind of you…. At least we ended the piece at the same time.”
So went the preface to the two gentlemen’s introduction of Schoenberg’s Piano Concerto last evening, which covered the work’s trajectory from the lilting “Life Was So Easy” through turbulence to resolution and acceptance in the final movement, “Life Goes On.”
They’ll continue the onstage conversation tonight and tomorrow.

Arnold Schoenberg - op.2 III. Erhebung

Cory Arcangel provides us with this uncanny yet somehow coherent sight - a rather feline performance of Schoenberg’s op. 11, made in reference to a recording of Gould playing it.

Cory will be contributing another Gould-fueled YouTube-age creation at Dreamers Renegades Visionaries: A Couple Thousand Short Films about Glenn Gould

What would Gould think of these manipulated recordings forming music?
