Edward Said on Gould and Hindemith

“…a stunningly fluent and demonic rendition of the last fugal movement of Hindernith’s Third Sonata, a fine piece hardly ever played in concert today for reasons that have to do with the intellectual cowardice and low aesthetic standards of a majority of today’s musicians, which Gould’s career as a whole so strenuously impugns.” (Edward Said, Musical Elaborations, p. 31)
