The first major biography of Glenn Gould to stress the critical influence of the Canadian context on his life and artGlenn .
He was, says Kevin Bazzana in this fascinating new full-scale biography, very much a product of his time and place – and his entire life and diverse work reflect his Canadian heritage.
Bazzana removes the mystification, clarifying not only Gould's drive and musical taste, but also what came to be regarded as his eccentricities. I will admit to having an obsession with the life and art of Glenn Gould. I had the privilege to hear him in concert in the early '60's. This superlative biography covers all the important, and many of the trivial, aspects of the Canadian pianist's relatively brief life, drawing a definitive picture of an unusual musician. I have never forgotten that moment.
