Glenn Gould, the legendary pianist whose likeness sits on a bench outside the CBC's Toronto headquarters, would have been 80 years old next week, and to celebrate, The Sunday Edition's music expert Robert Harris spoke about the genius and his legacy with host Michael Enright.
Robert was also kind enough to share his suggestions for further reading about Gould with CBC Books:
Robert also recommends that Gould enthusiasts supplement their reading with the 1959 television documentary Glenn Gould Moments. He says: "For someone as well-known as Glenn Gould, it's shocking to find significantly important documents about him that are still relatively unknown. This is a 1959 TV documentary shot about Gould (available as far as I know only on YouTube, the world's greatest musical resource) that is enormously revealing, charming and fascinating."
