The National Library of Canada hosts this collection of materials related to the eccentric, but brilliant Toronto-born concert pianist Glenn Gould. The Library has posted audio archival tapes of Gould in recording sessions and playing at home, two searchable databases of its voluminous collection of his papers (only the catalog entries are available here), two chronologies, a Gould bibliography, lists of films, videos and radio broadcasts made by and about Gould as well as selections of writings by and about Gould. There is a good bit of Gouldiana here that will interest only Gould fanatics or biographers, but the site also includes such valuable items as Gould's essay on "The Prospects of Recording" -- his manifesto declaring the superiority of recorded performances to live ones-and the self-referential "Glenn Gould Interviews Glenn Gould about Glenn Gould."
