    When he went swimming, he insisted on wearing long rubber gloves that extended past his elbows. In addition, of all artists he has been the most frank in discussing the manipulative and transforming procedures used in making recordings. Now, I don't want to stand in the way of your sanctimoniousness, but I believe that documentary evidence weighs in as the only proof of historical fact. Our relationship was, among other things, quite sexual.

    Gould's piano teacher, Alberto Guerrerohad encouraged Gould to practice " finger tapping ", which required very slowly tapping the fingers of the playing hand with the free hand. Bazzana, which I have a Glenn Gould of, has researched the documentation which shows that Gould's parents were married as Herbert and Florrie Gold, subsequently, either informally or formally, changed to Gould. It may well be this internal compulsion which explains his notorious habit of singing as he plays, a habit which has required the use of special recording techniques to minimize the resultant intrusive noise and which is still the continuing cause of much negative critical comment. On a more self-conscious level, Gould is a calculating thinker whose decisions, though arising out of fundamental musicality, are informed by a streak of healthy perversity. Indeed, it opens up many avenues of speculation, which to me is the glory of the book.

    But music & mind book before he was born, according to her niece, Jessie Greig, "she did play music all the time she was carrying Glenn, with the hope that he was going to be a classical pianist. It is not that Gould takes more liberties with the pulse or always plays faster than Schnabel; it is rather that the liberties he does take intrude themselves on the listener by their unexpectedness. Ostwald died before he could further develop his theory. Ostwald undoubtedly comes as close as anyone to making the main pieces fit. In the former case the composer supposedly has a mental image of the music prior to its realization in sound; in the latter instance the active sense stimuli are It is this world, in effect, into which Gould was taking his own tentative steps.

It was another commercial success. Gould moved to the Park Lane Apartments in and lived there until he died in at the age of The pianist has not been bashful in urging recorded music as the wave of the future, replacing the old-fashioned and moribund concert atmosphere with a medium in which music can find continued and new life.

Yet Gould continues to fascinate, beyond his reputation for reclusive, eccentric behavior, olympic pill-popping, and provocative remarks. In seeming contrast to his geniality, open-mindedness and modernism, Gould's remarks on jazz and other popular music were mostly uninterested or oblique.
