Glenn Gould (Canadian, 1932-1982) was a brilliant and unusual pianist, probably best known for his 1955 recording Bach: The Goldberg Variations. (He had a habit of vocalizing, humming and "la la la-ing"as he played, which I always found charming. You may see an example of that here.) There is a lot to know about this gifted soul, but look what I found - he had a dog named Nick when he was a child. What a sweet photo! Child prodigies need loyal friends - looks like he had one.
