Did You Know?


The character of Winslow Elliott is a parody of Canadian pianist Glenn Gould. Elliott's eccentricities - his gloves, bulky layers of clothing, and aversion to touching people - are based on Gould's hypochondria and his hatred of cold (especially when playing). Gould was also known for unconsciously humming/vocalizing music even when recording, similar to Elliott's vocalizations while under his therapist's hypnosis. Elliott's conversation with Rodrigo about preferring Bach to Mozart is also true to Gould, who revered Bach and criticized Mozart (and most Romantic-era composers) for his "hedonistic" music. In fact, the most un-Gouldian element in the episode is Elliott's association with Rachmaninoff -- considered the most Romantic and virtuosic of pianist-composers; Gould never recorded Rachmaninoff's piano concertos, unlike Elliott.

Wallace Shawn an American Treasure
30 January 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

When Rodrigo decides that a world renowned pianist, played by Wallace Shawn, should not be there for his first concert, the man comes to see him. They engage in a weird meets weird interaction, where Shawn actually hypnotized Rodrigo, so he can see what he wants. What he actually wants is that crazy wife playing a Sibelius violin concerto. But, of course, she is nuts. The other plot is Cynthia being sent to Cuba to bring Thomas back. He is living among the natives and playing with street musicians (the bongos of all things). But he is in his glory. She comes back empty handed. This show continually stretches reality and it doesn't matter.
