    a one-off case, which is more to do with trickery, but not music.

    tricks can be ok and even impressive, however, unable to constitute a system.

    and music is a system, not just series of separate instances.

    Gould was not totally absorbed in music. He managed to play the stock market and have an affair too

    I guess you're pretty ignorant about jazz pianists and improvisation. No trickery involved. Art Tatum was a master musician.
    Short-term thinkers are rewarded with reelection, while those who dare to take seriously our responsibility to future generations commonly find themselves out of office.

    Gould had an emotional connection to Bach that I find transfixing. His 1981 recording of the Goldberg Variations is unmatched in both the serenity of the Aria and the intensity of what follows. He's one of the only classical musicians I've found that was a total artist in his approach. Of course that's also what people criticize him for. But I love him for it.
