Starting at $5.99$24.99

Let RetroSparX spark your memory with Glenn Gould – A Musical Wonder. Glenn Gould was a giant of the classical music scene. His talent was unparalleled, and he approached his craft with an intellectual rigour that few could replicate. His piano recordings still resonate with a singular clarity of purpose and near technical perfection. Read about the heights that Glenn Gould scaled in the musical world, and the quirky legacy that he left behind.

As an added bonus, in Notes on Notes, check out some of the lesser known facts about the intensely private, and admittedly idiosyncratic, Glenn Gould.
