Extended interview with violinist Andrew Forde

Extended interview with violinist Andrew Forde

This month, I got to meet Andrew Forde, a Toronto-based violinist who has been working on a new project inspired by Glenn Gould. (In case you didn't know, Gould is one of the most well-known Canadian pianists, but as Forde pointed out, was extremely eccentric.) I sat down with Forde at Revolution Recording in Leslieville while he worked on a track with rapper Shad. I wrote about it for Metro Toronto, but Forde had more to say about Gould's and his own philosophies on music, performing, his next steps, and his partnership with Roots Canada.

And none of them were as cold -- and as twisted, we would later find out -- as the murder of Sister Cathy, a Baltimore nun who was a teacher at Seton Keough High School.
