Glenn Gould

(1932 - 1982)

Born in 1932, Glenn Gould studied piano at the age of three, began composing two years later, and entered the Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto at the age of ten. He went into isolation in 1952 to refine his skills—with only a tape recorder, his piano, and his dogs as companions—and returned to the stage in 1955. His performances of Bach are considered unrivaled in the twentieth century.
