Anonymous's picture

Designations: 1998 FD, 1993 FA26, 1982 BW13
Named in honour of Glenn Gould (b.1932, d.1982), a pianist who remains one of Canada's most important and influential cultural figures. He is probably best known for his idiosyncratic interpretations of Johann Sebastian Bach's keyboard works, but he was also a conductor, composer, provocative author, commentator and producer of radio and TV documentaries.
