Disklavier Plays Glenn Gould Performances
By Steve McCollum

This story is interesting.  I wonder how they got the source material?
Would Glenn Gould have cut rolls, or are these transcribed somehow from
audio recordings?  This deserves some more details!

"Ghost concert to revive music of the past"

Steve McCollum

 [ "The music will be played on a grand piano that has been specially
 [ programmed to give a note-perfect, live rendition of ancient
 [ recordings made by Alfred Cortot in 1928 and Glenn Gould in 1962.
 [ "... It has successfully tried out the Cortot and Gould pieces on
 [ the Disklavier Pro, one of only a few concert grand pianos that
 [ can record and play back high-definition MIDI files."
 [ -- Robbie
