On the occasion of the celebrations of the 85th anniversary of the birth of Glenn Gould, the Canadian Cultural Centre welcomes Jean-Yves Clément, author of Glenn Gould ou le Piano de l’esprit (Editions Actes Sud, collection Classica, 2016).
Two evenings to celebrate a legendary performer; who was also a composer, writer, a good communicator and the first musician to give recording a philosophical dimension. Given the planetary appreciation of his performance of the Goldberg Variations, nearly everyone knows Glenn Gould. Over fifty years after leaving the concert stage and over thirty years after his death, Gould, who barely experienced media hysteria, is the best-known classical artist, except Karajan or Callas perhaps.
The two evenings aim to start two different dialogues about the book and the both philosophical and poetic approach to Glenn Gould by Jean-Yves Clément: one with Manuel Brossé, lecturer in musicology at Université Paris – Sorbonne, and the other with the French cellist Henri Demarquette (Part II).
This event is organised in partnership with Editions Actes Sud.
