An enigmatic musical poet, world-renowned pianist Glenn Gould continues to captivate 27 years after his untimely death. Gould's inimitable music and writing reveal an insightful worldview that we are still unravelling. His use of complex recording technologies, including editing and manipulating recordings and overdubbing, 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.
