Then and now for Wednesday, October 4th.
The great Canadian pianist Glenn Gould died on this day in 1982 at the age of 50 years old. He possessed prodigious musical talent and was known as a musical Maverick. And he sometimes shocked people with his interpretations of the music of Mozart and Brahms. The National Film Board put out two documentary portraits of him in 1959.
