Re: Why No Ricercare?
Hi Andrew and all,
Which leads to my question: Am I right that Gould never recorded this
Unfortunately yes, I am virtually certain.
He may have played it in a concert or two, but I'm not sure even of that.
Who knows. Why didn't he record any of the things he obviously `should'
have :)? (Art of Fugue, the other 70+ bach keyboard pieces, more early
stuff -- Gibbon being his favorite composer and all --, etc, etc...)
Did he ever talk or write about it?
Not more than the superficial what-a-great-piece in the standard
collections, as far as I can recall. He could well have talked about it
on a tv program or uncollected article, though ...
