Glenn Gould: The Alchemist (1974) 1of4

Glenn Gould The Alchemist 1of4 org

“Bruno Monsaingeon made this television film about Glenn Gould in 1974, when the pianist had been in self-imposed exile from the concert platform for more than a decade.

Filmed in Toronto, it is a sometimes contrived mixture of interview and performance: part documentary, part feature. It gives Gould the opportunity to expound many of his pet theories, some more convincing than others, and more importantly to play the piano, which he did as well as anyone in the last century.

The music spans his hugely various repertoire, from Orlando Gibbons and Byrd through the inevitable Bach (an English Suite and the Sixth Partita) to Wagner, Scriabin and the Second Viennese School. Sometimes the results are infuriating, but more often they are uniquely compelling.”
