Glenn Gould [1932–1982] was a Canadian pianist and proably the best one ever. He was noted especially for his recordings of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Glenn gave up concert performances in 1964, dedicating himself to the recording studio for the rest of his career. Both his recordings of Bach's Goldberg Variations [in 1955 and 1981] are highlights in contemporary classic music. Some more informations at wiki
