Glenn Gould: Look, no scoremain
‘You know what an incurable romantic I am,’ Gould would tell friends. When he performed the Brahms Quintet the other musicians begged him to use a score, if only for appearance’s sake. He did put a score on the piano and turned a page from time to time, without regard for where he actually was in the music. This concert was on August 20/1957 with the Montreal String Quartet.
