Glenn Gould (1932-1982) was a prodigy who loathed the word, a
brilliant pianist who disliked performing, and a public figure who
craved solitude. With his recording of the Goldberg Variations by J.S.
Bach, Gould became an international celebrity. Gould's unusual
interpretations, quirky stage mannerisms, and teasingly contrarian
pronouncements fascinated and annoyed audiences and critics. He gave
concerts in Canada, the United States, and abroad for several years. To
everyone's disbelief, he quit the concert stage just a few months short
of his thirty-second birthday and immersed himself in his true love:
the recording studio.
