Personalities | Glenn Gould | Contemporary | Classical

Canadian pianist

Although renowned as a concert pianist from the age of 14, Gould constantly sought new ways of communicating music through the popular media of the time. To this end, he gave up concerts in 1964 and concentrated on making recordings. His interpretations, notably of J. S. Bach, were controversial but had many admirers. He also composed, wrote articles and made television and radio documentaries.
