    ^ Yep, very nice score there, Barry!

    Glenn Gould's interpretations of the Beethoven late piano sonatas are as interesting and unconventional as you'd expect!

    Rather enjoying this just now:



    If you haven't heard this album, Jerry, check it out. Superb violin playing, and an overall enthralling musical performance from a talented young musician, ably supported by a very capable orchestra

    Yep, I've heard that, Marco. And yes, very enjoyable indeed!

    I also have a DVD Video of her playing the Shosty.

    Probably the unexpected highlight of yesterday's listening - Glenn Gould in Beethoven piano bagatelles. He really brings them to life in an interesting way.

    This is rather lovely, if a little laid back:




    Don't know if you're familiar with it, Jerry? Introduction and a small taster here:

    Full of folksy goodness! Nicely laidback listening.

    Gottfried von Einem's Piano Concerto, mid 1950s neo-classical, hints of Beethoven, Stravinsky & Prokofiev. Really enjoyed this recording:
