American Masters – Glenn Gould: Genius (Part 1)

English: Glenn Gould

As you probably know by now, I love to find out more about people I’ve only ever heard being talked about. Glenn Gould is another example of a talent I knew almost nothing about up to now.

Glenn Herbert Gould (25 September 1932 – 4 October 1982) was a Canadian pianist who became one of the best-known and most celebrated classical pianists of the 20th century. He was particularly renowned as an interpreter of the keyboard music of Johann Sebastian Bach. His playing was distinguished by remarkable technical proficiency and capacity to articulate the polyphonic texture of Bach’s music.
