For those of you with a fast connection, several documentary and performance
videos of Gould playing Bach were recently added to YouTube:

It seems that both the 1955 and 1981 Goldberg variations have been captured on
video as well.

The1962 video of him directing / performing Cantata 54 is available in two
parts:






The piano sounds out of tune and the German is dodgy, but nevertheless a
lovely performance filled with the emotional power one expects from Glenn
Gould.


Kind regards

Many of the videos seem to be segmented. The 1981 Goldbergs are in 4 parts.

To me the instrument in the 1962 Cantata 54 videos sounds like it's possibly a
fortepiano.

It was a specially prepared piano with thumbtacks in the hammers to
give it that sound.
