Hi Karl - Glad you liked the pictures. I live in Chicago - so plane trip to Ottawa as soon as I became aware of the exposition. It was marvelous!
The only thing that I see regarding celebration for Glenn Gould's 80th, is the GGF's lecture series starting in September  (see http://glenngould.ca/lectures/ ).

P.S. - I passed Carleton on the way back to the airport!

Good morning Kate,

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner, I was struck by the flu over the last weekend and with the exception of a 15 minute stint early Monday morning, I came in and picked up some work to bring home and responded to a few messages, I am now back at work.

Thank you very much for the pictures, I'm so sorry I missed the exhibit, it must have been great. Where did you travel from to get to the exhibit if I may ask? It's always amazing to see how far people will travel and the amount of effort people will put into there sorts of events.

Wrt the 80th anniversary, in a previous e-mail, Pat is willing to bet ...
..."I bet a sixpack of Molson against a bottle of Poland Water that at least one of these instruments,  presumably CD 318 will be played this year and I also bet the National Library of Canada will have at least one special exibition or event this year where one could have a look at these pianos and much more that mmight usually not be on display. Mind you, GG still is one of the most important and prominet public cultural figures of his country and I doubt they will miss this opportunity for annus mirabilis. We will have to get to the exact implications of annus mirabilis later this year. Let’s hear what is on offer first. 

What about his “harpspiano” or whatever that thing is called ? Have I forgotten any instrument ? Good grief, memory and age.... 


So, at this point I do not have any news to tell but if someone out there in the Gouldian Galaxy has new to tell ...
Likewise, I will be only too glad to relay any information I happen to stumble upon.
Kind regards,
