About Glenn Gould

Glenn Gould (Toronto, Canada 1932-1982) was a canadian pianist most known for his interpretations of baroque keyboard music, particularly the works of Johann Sebastian Bach. Gould's first performance to receive widespread attention was his 1955 recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations. His speed, dexterity and tone revolutionized the understanding of this piece and it became inextricably linked with Gould for the remainder of his life. His final recording, in 1981, was also of the Goldberg Variations -- a much more studied and reflective interpretation of the work. Read more about Glenn Gould on Last.fm.
