April 5 & 6: The Gould-Bernstein-Brahms Brouhaha Revisited

354 Episode 0354 The Gould_Bernstein_Brahms Brouhaha (2022-04-05).mp3

In April 1962, Glenn Gould joined Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic for a series of concerts involving Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 1 in D Minor Op. 15. Sixty years later, Gould’s unorthodox interpretive ideas and Bernstein’s pre-concert disclaimer still evoke curiosity and controversy.

For this week’s edition of the ASCAP Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys, The Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler explores the “Gould/Bernstein/Brahms Brouhaha” in depth, with recorded excerpts from its original 1962 broadcast and other Brahms D Minor Concerto performances, as well as comments from Pulitzer Prize winning author and Gould authority Tim Page, who was a friend and colleague of the pianist.

Tune in to Between the Keys this Tuesday night April 5th at 10, with a rebroadcast Wednesday April 6th at noon, exclusively on The Classical Network and
