Re: Abba & Sgt Pepper
Does anyone know what Glenn Gould thought of the Beatles?
I ask because the Beatles too withdrew from the concert stage and into the
studio where they did their best work. Also, they were determined that
everything they created should be different, much like Glenn Gould was
determined that everything he interpreted should be differend (the Mozart
sonatas spring to mind).
Many people (myself included) see the Beatles' work and Sgt Pepper in
particular as the first real pop album on par with classical works such as
symphonies and operas. Did Glenn Gould, classical musician par excellence,
agree? Do we know?
