The Glenn Gould Foundation | Gould’s Variations & the Human Qualities that Foster Remarkable Creativity

September 25, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Glenn Gould

In 1955, Glenn Gould recorded Bach’s Goldberg Variations catapulting him to international fame and becoming the top-selling classical music recording of all time. In 1981, Gould, following a transformation in his conception of the masterpiece, re-recorded the work.

In his exploration of these two landmark recordings, Prof. Cohen reveals the brilliance of Bach’s creation and Gould’s innovative vision to re-create and his belief in the imperative of artists to engage with technology as a moral, spiritual and democratizing force.
