Last week we explored a peculiar question on the connection (if any) a performer has with an instrument. Some performers, according to an interview with Glenn Gould first, make a connection to the instrument presumably the piano, although Gould never stated this in the interview. The second type, he claims and cites Richter as a prime example of this bypasses the mechanical interaction with the instrument instead making what Gould phases as "a direct connect," with the music thus involving the listener with a more intuitive performance, drawing the audience into the score itself.
