By the time he reached his mid 20s, Glenn Gould had changed the way the world listened to the keyboard works of J.S. Bach. By the time of his fatal stroke in 1982 at the age of 50, this daring and visionary artist had successfully challenged many of the most cherished conventions of classical music.
Now, for the first time, the film and television programs Gould made with CBC from 1954 to 1977 are being made available to music fans around the world. GLENN GOULD ON TELEVISION: THE COMPLETE CBC BROADCASTS includes more than 19 hours of TV specials, concert performances, interviews and discussions, all remastered specifically for this DVD release. This remarkable collection makes it possible to enjoy what Gould always considered some of his most significant and original life's work, most of which has not been seen since it was first broadcast.
