I just got information about a museum exhibition about Gould. Details can be found here


I haven't searched it much but there may be interesting things there.

Alice Gunther

Great post, and many thanks to Scott for the interesting information!

Helen (MaryVitamin)

Thanks Lissa!
We've watched several of the Gould DVD's and enjoyed them.

Mama Squirrel

Gosh, thanks for the nice mention--and I'm thrilled that you're going to be listening (and watching) along with us. I wasn't sure how well Glenn Gould was even known in the U.S.!

Mr. Karen Edmisten

At the end of an especialy chaotic day, I will sometimes put on the Gould recording of the Goldberg Variations, and the effect is absolutely cathartic, away goes much of my stress.

Meredith from Merchant Ships

I have to say I've never heard of him (Gould, not Bach!). We're musically deficient in our house, thanks to my lack of knowledge, but it's nice to know we can all learn it together.

Doesn't Mama Squirrel have the best suggestions?

Karen Edmisten

Hey, we're listening to Bach this month, too, and we had Glenn Gould on a couple days ago (I see my better half has already been here and mentioned the Goldberg Variations ....)


I have a groovy musical guy, too! He has a degree in Vocal Music Education and is an absolute fountain of information. Hooray for Helpful Husbands!


oh, I'm chuckling at the "when I'm knee-deep in educational philosophy he's reading musicians' biographies" comment. I can relate. I'm ALWAYS knee (waist, neck, way-over-my-head...) deep in educational philosophy of some sort or other and my husband (a piano professor) loves biographies (musicians' and others, too). Your house at night sounds a lot like my own in this respect...

thanks for the heads-up about mama squirrel---we love gould around here (he's my husband's favorite).
