then he became more reflective and tapped on a Gregorian chant, "Spiritus Domini," performed by Benedictine monks.

For a minute or so he zoned out, almost in a trance. "That's really beautiful," he murmured.
他恍惚出神了一会儿,喃喃自语着:“简直太美了。”
He followed with Bach's Second Brandenburg Concerto and a fugue from The Well-Tempered Clavier.

He was particularly fond of listening to the contrasts between the two versions of the "Goldberg Variations" that Glenn Gould recorded,
他尤其热衷于比较格伦·古尔德弹奏录制的两个版本的《戈登堡变奏曲》之间的区别。
the first in 1955 as a twenty-two-year-old little-known pianist and the second in 1981, a year before he died.
古尔德第一次录制是在1955年,当时他刚22岁,还是个没什么名气的小钢琴师;1981年第二次录制时,距离古尔德去世仅一年时间。
"They're like night and day," Jobs said after playing them sequentially one afternoon.

"The first is an exuberant, young, brilliant piece, played so fast it's a revelation.
第一版热情洋溢、年轻有活力,弹奏速度很快,像是神示;
The later one is so much more spare and stark.

You sense a very deep soul who's been through a lot in life. It's deeper and wiser."

"I used to like the earlier, exuberant one. But now I can see where he was coming from."
我以前喜欢早期的版本,有活力的那一版。但是现在我能感受到他在两次演奏之间所经历的一切。”
