“Glenn Gould in 2007 - 25 Years After His Death”

The Canadian Embassy's E.H. Norman Library Speaker Series introduces Canada through its books and authors.

2007 marks the 75th anniversary of the birth and the 25th anniversary of the death of Canadian pianist - genius Glenn Gould (1932-1982). A variety of events are taking place in Canada including an exhibit at the Canadian Museum of Civilization and a conference sponsored by the Glenn Gould Foundation.

The Canadian Embassy has invited Junichi Miyazawa, Japan's leading expert on Glenn Gould and a speaker at the Glenn Gould Foundation conference in Canada, to speak on “Glenn Gould in 2007.” Along with the lecture, we will offer screenings of the National Film Board of Canada's documentaries Glenn Gould Off the Record and Glenn Gould On the Record (1959) as well as the first screening in Japan of Glenn Gould's Toronto (1979).

We look forward to seeing you.
