Glenn Gould was one of the most innovative and prophetic musical thinkers of the twentieth century. Few musicians of his time have had as much influence on the way people think about the art of music, its purpose, its effects, its practitioners, its audiences.
Glenn Gould, Music and Mind was the first, and for many years the only, study of Gould's work. It is about Gould as a musical thinker, Gould as a literary artist, Gould as a glorious misfit. No one who takes an interest in performing or listening to music, or in thinking about it, can fail to be delighted by this groundbreaking work.
