For those to whom he's a new name or a marginal figure, this is a thoroughly pleasurable primer, and a work of art in its own right.

Audience Reviews for Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould

I loved it. I love Glenn Gould, so I was easily amused. It sheds some new light on a musician who has been discussed a lot. The crucial question about Gould is often lost by many people. How is it that a classical pianist (not a composer or conductor) is still getting so much attention 30 years after his passing? It isn't just his exceptional playing, nor is it his odd behavior. I think it is because he was so tuned in to our times, predicting developments in music, computers, media, etc., in some cases long before the means existed to make it real.
