Glenn Gould (1932-1982) was a Canadian pianist who became one of the best-known and most celebrated classical pianists of the 20th century.

“The purpose of art is not the release of a momentary ejection of adrenalin but is, rather, the gradual, lifelong construction of a state of wonder and serenity.”
