It’s not just Glenn Gould that’s for sale

The NY Times is acting as shill for Bonham’s coming sale of Glenn Gould’s much-decorated copy of Bach’s Goldberg Variations.  Tim Page has authenticated the manuscript.

I know a lot of people who will be more impressed by another item at the same auction house a few days earlier – an unknown Schumann draft of Fantasiestücke.

Seriously interesting.
