A Romance on Three Legs: Glenn Gould's Obsessive Quest for the Perfect Piano - Katie  Hafner I recommend that after reading this you watch 32 Short Films About Glenn Gould (which is one film) and listen to his 1955 recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations. The combination makes for an unusual and entertaining story of musical genius, piano tuning, and irresistibly odd fellows, Gould's piano tuner being almost as interesting as he is. Gould's early interpretation of Goldberg remains unrivaled, and listening to it is like hearing one person play with six hands. If you're looking to lighten up and clear the cobwebs, you can't beat it.
