Glenn Gould - The Essential Glenn Gould - CD
Item # L7004997
Hailed by The Washington Post following his US debut as "a pianist with rare gifts for the world... we know of no pianish anything like him of any age," the Canadian Glenn Gould's celebrity and popularity have only increased after his death, a few days after his fiftieth birthday, in 1982. With his unique power to communicate, he reached and deeply moved vast numbers of people previously untouched by classical music, while continuing to enthral and stimulate many of the greatest musicians in the world. Especially noted for his interpretations of Bach, he gave up performing in public in 1964, devoting himself entirely to recordings which continue to mesmerise listeners with their magical immediacy.
