For classical music devotees, Glenn Gould was a rock star.
It’s only cultures that, by accident or good management, bypassed the Renaissance which see art for the menace it really is.
Clark’s Cinema 320 series is showing Genius Within, a documentary about the Canadian pianist Glenn Gould, this weekend. It’s also on Netflix instant view, but really, half the fun of being a Gould fan is talking about his music and mania with others. If things work out, maybe I’ll see you there.
Thursday March 10, Saturday March 12 @ 7:30PM;
Sunday March 13 @ 1, 3:10PM. Jefferson Academic Center, on the corner of Main and Downing streets in Worcester. $5.50.
But this pill complex of mine has been grossly exaggerated. . . . One
reporter wrote that I travelled with a suitcase full of pills.
Actually, they barely fill a briefcase.
The closest thing I’ve done to an artwork about Gould was the Snow Ghost show about Mystery Band 2008, in which my band performed “Glenn Gould Goes to Leningrad.”
