Intermezzo

June 27 2013

Brahms, Intermezzo, opus 119, no 1, b minor, 1893, Glenn Gould, perhaps a CBC broadcast, date not known to me. He plays it fast, considering that it is marked adagio. Cover art of one of my favourite Gould CDs, his Brahms Piano Quintet with the Montreal String Quartet, 1957, from a CBC broadcast. The Intermezzo is a filler.

I admit that Richter with the Borodin Quartet, 1958 puts that Quintet in the shade.
