Video: Glenn Gould Plays Excerpts From Beethoven’s Symphony No.6

I discovered this short Japanese film about Glenn Gould on YouTube in which he discusses how he removes himself from the city in order to get away from ’emotional escalation’. At the start is a clip of him playing excerpts from Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 in a transcription for piano by Franz Liszt – skip to a minute into the film to get past the talking head.
