Glenn Gould, gone 32 years, is now as popular as ever

Hear Gould playing the Keyboard Concertos, the Inventions, the Suites — anything of Bach — and the music is new again. He brought to this composer, whom so many saw (wrongly) as a staid, unemotional, religious musician, a fierce kinetic charge and drive that compelled listening.

He played Bach as saints used to pray: totally immersed, self lost to the music.
