Glenn Gould's Chair

Sep 19, 2018

For Glenn Gould, his chair was his closest companion — a foundation which offered a sense of stability for a performer who struggled with fame. Glenn Gould used it from the very beginning of his career to his last breath, at the young age of 50. In this episode, we make a discovery, and in the process, meet Gould’s former recording engineer, and best friend — Lorne Tulk. He walks us through his deeply personal recollections of Gould, explains the significance of the chair, and how it came to be.
