Glenn Gould’s chair

June 6, 2008

Brad Wood just gave me a delightful DVD called “Glenn Gould The Alchemist” a must-see for all GG fans. At the top of the documentary, Glenn whisks into the room with a small chair. It turns out that this little tattered chair (“a member of the family”) is and always has been his piano seat/chair/bench. I looked into it and they are now selling replicas of this chair. I wonder if it has the shredded material hanging from it as well? I can’t imagine that would be terribly attractive, but it would be authentic. Take look at the opening of the film.
