To Quote or Not to Quote?

Posted in Uncategorized by Higher Density Blog on May 18, 2017

What do you think about quotes from other tunes in the middle of an improvised solo? Some masters often quote (Desmond and Stitt are prime examples) while others almost never do (Coltrane comes to mind). Do quotes provide a valuable resource, or are they a distraction? Love to hear your opinion! Please leave a […]

Glenn Gould and Leonard Bernstein: Bach’s Keyboard Concerto No 1 in D minor (BWV 1052)

This clip is absolutely sensational: as education, composition and in performance.

Glenn Gould was 28 years old here.

For the impatient, Gould’s performance begins at 5:08 (but I strongly encourage you to watch Leonard Bernstein’s fascinating introduction).

This film originally aired in 1960 on CBS Television as part of its “Ford Presents” series.

The entire film in high quality (of which this clip is a small part) was painstakingly hunted down by YouTuber erp65 and his friends. It can be found here, and I urge you, I really DO urge you, to see it in its entirety:

I have sought erp65’s permission to cross-post, as a courtesy, but I have not yet heard back. Meanwhile, my abject enthusiasm got the better of me.

This film has to be promulgated far and wide. This was erp65’s entire intention here, and we owe him and his friends enormous thanks.

Conductor: Leonard Bernstein

COMPOSING AND MOTHERHOOD BY EMILY DOOLITTLE ON APRIL 26, 2017 When I started composing, as an 18 year old in 1990, I knew of few women composers. Those I did know of either had their careers curtailed when they had kids (Clara Schumann, Alma Mahler, Ruth Crawford Seeger), or they didn’t have kids (Pauline Oliveros, […]
