variations on glenn gould

posted in: montreal 0

oh yeah, I forgot to mention I went to the variations on glenn gould concert at radio-canada yesterday.

it was kinda lame. I was expecting to be able to see the montreal pianist perform–but when we arrived there was nary a piano in sight. we watched a video montage of the 6-pianists-in-their-6-cities with crappy video and cheesy landscape shots fading into the video feed for the whole two hours. (oh yeah, and TWO HOURS? they played all the repeats.)

interesting idea. just not well executed.
