Surprised this thread wasn't created earlier given the nature of the forum.

Just finished listening to Glenn Gould's interpretation of Beethoven's Piano Sonata no. 1. He plays the first movement in a way which is so stately and un-dramatic compared to most other interpretations I've heard, I can't really work out what to make of it. It's definitely uniquely Gouldian, if nothing else.



(Richter for comparison)

As far as those two go, I think the general principle of 'the less drama, the better' applies.

My perverse interest told me to check out Gould's interpretation of 'Moonlight', and sure enough there is practically no romantic affectations anywhere in the piece. The tempo of this one is a bit up from the traditional interpretation though. But I now totally appreciate his uniqueness as an interpreter.
