Re: Well Tempered Clavier

Odd. I've come across this site before.  But I completely missed the bit on Gould and Richter.  The writer refers to an edition of the WTC by Richter in which, apparently in 95, Richter himself selects the performances.   I'll have to check that.

Here is an article about the WTC.  Glenn Gould is acknowledged as a genius.  I find the opening offensive and too cute, but the article on the WTC is good. The writer claims Sviatoslav Richter and Glenn Gould were missionaries for "The New Temperament".  I wonder how Glenn Gould would feel about that.
