Glenn Gould plays Bach

Glenn Gould plays Bach, a clip from The Art of Piano: Great Pianists of the 20th Century, which is online (for now) in what appears to be its entirety.

It has some great details in it: There’s a top hat at 4m40s (which the co-curator enjoyed), some increasingly speedy piano playing starting at 11m, recorded sound action at 51m39s, fighter planes enjoying a concert at 1h11m42s, and a bit of piano anatomy at 1h22m13s (probably our favorite). Glenn Gould’s segment starts at 1h24m45s.

Thanks, @zarg.
