^ Was thinking the same thing but realistically it won't happen, getting him the chair that is. Perhaps he would comment on the original video though.
He has been dead for almost 40 years but people will continue to listen and talk about it. No offence, but I can't see the connection with Fisk and his live chaconne.
Right. Given it can be evaluated in any way you like, my point is more of how the interpretation breathes different lives into music when it has been sufficiently convinced, even if you are not the player of the particular performance, as the first and sufficient student performance in the YT video is transformed with a different life inspired by BZ interpretation into the student's initial performance which is like a blank material piece of wood after all.
Similar approaches to Fisk can be traditionally found like Busoni which has been equally controversial and I believe has often been referened upon transcriptions/arrangements for the guitar versions as I did a little research to clarify my long standing and incorrect misunderstanding, and also by Gould as you mentioned, or Landowska arguably acclaimed to be the key contributor to Cembalo revival back in time and some other reputable performers.
Some might not like any of those mentioned, which might as well have been the point of their interpretations, as all of their performances are at least very much convinced by their respective selves enough to be publicly performed by themselves.
We all know hopefully that playing tunes we can sufficiently handle allows us options: to exactly trace the existent wake, or to make a fresh wake, just like we have as listening musicians: to appreciate the former or latter.
And by the former we could possibly claim our legitimate heir status as the keyword "classical" implies oftentimes, whereas we otherwise might be able to claim our rebel artist status by the latter. And with his acclaimed finesse that I don't question, I don't believe Fisk did not have both options.
It's more likely a matter of his choice than any such shortcoming of Fisk as have been discussed here.
And if there is anything we as guitarists in general could learn out of the particular EF performance(s) whether we like it or not could be, how he is approacing to be a rebel artist rather than any legitimate heir as has been historically attempted.
