  • “ "A great piece of music is beautiful regardless of how it is performed. Any prelude or fugue of Bach can be played at any tempo, with or without rhythmic nuances, and it will still be great music. That’s how music should be written, so that no-one, no matter how philistine, can ruin it."

 ”

    I once read this quote as being said by Glenn Gould. I don’t agree with it? ??? I’m not gonna sit around listening to midi files of mahler? Bach preludes might survive being changed into math but they sound kind of bad?????
