    Glenn Gould was the greatest and I would rather listen to the great musicians of the past than today's new flashy players who don't express any feeling when they play. Give me Gould, Richter, Rubinstein, Horowitz, and Rachmaninov any day.

    Simply put: no.

    Even more simply put, yes!

    You might watch I, Robot.

    That's what Gould's performances of JS Bach sound like to me.
