    @schmonz Interesting interpretation, but most people who love Chopin probably wouldn’t choose Gould’s take. Most people wouldn’t choose Marc-André Hamelin either, but in this repertoire he has a lot more to offer (in my opinion, of course). Here’s Hamelin playing his Triple Etude, which mashes up three of Chopin’s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhgOh8mmefQ

    Another fun take on Chopin is Doucet’s “Chopinata”, again here performed by Hamelin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NM3iFnwwdeI

      @yeah that’s why I posted it, Gould did not like chopin, a very nerdy jab for the 2 people that care.

    1. except that says:

      @except that the event seemed to be put together in a rush.

      I was peeved at first because I thought the pianists were putting way too much rubato on the pieces, but it soon became apparent that they were just under-practiced and hesitant on their notes.

    Does anyone want to switch CC sections with me?
