    I've watched some of the studio films on YouTube. He just kept doing take after take of a section until it sounded right to him. The editing must have been quite a laborious task. I'm still kicking myself for not buying the Glenn Gould On Television DVD set a few years ago when Presto had it on sale for 39 dollars.
    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.

    I find Hewitt a more interesting musician in music other than Bach. Her complete Ravel set and the Debussy disc are outstanding, as is the Bach Transcriptions CD.
