As launches go, this was quite an affair. Music critic (and friend of Gould) Tim Page flew in from Los Angeles to talk about his memories of Gould, and the young Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki was on hand to play some movements from the Goldbergs.
It’s nice to see that the CBC hasn’t entirely forgotten its own glorious past. But if Glenn Gould were alive today, how much time would he be granted in front of the television cameras?
