Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould DVD

 
An enigmatic musical poet, world-renowned pianist Glenn Gould continues to captivate twenty-seven years after his untimely death.

His inimitable music and writing reveal an insightful worldview that we are still unraveling his use of complex recording technologies, including manipulating recordings over dubbing, was unprecedented. Though there have been many documentaries about Gould, most are distracted by his eccentricities, focusing on the pills, gloves, and scarves while missing the man and message behind the music. Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould pierces through the myths, revealing the man beneath the icon.


Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould weaves together an unprecedented array of never-before seen footage of Gould, photographs and excerpts from his private home recordings and diaries plus personal interviews with Gould's most intimate friends and lovers, some who have never spoken about him publicly before, to reconstruct his thoughts on music, art, society, love, and life. (Interviews include Cornelia Foss, Roxolana Roslak, Ray Roberts, Petula Clark, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Lorne Tulk, John Roberts, Mark Kingwell and many others).


In our current media saturated world, where information trumps knowledge, there's a profound need for someone who cuts through the static, and speaks to us with a clear, candid, and timeless tone. That is one of Glenn Gould's most profound gifts.
