Happy Birthday Glenn Gould (1932-1982)

The great Canadian pianist, who taught everyone how Bach should be played on the modern piano.I still prefer Alfred Brendel's interpretation of the Italian Concerto (my all-time favorite recording by any artist of any composer), but for the Well-tempered Klavier and other works, Gould reigns supreme.

And just to prove Gould could do more than Bach, here he is playing Schoenberg's Fantasie Op. 47 with Yehudi Menuhin.
