"What is believed to be Glenn Gould's first piano was revealed by two Toronto sisters this summer.

CBC Toronto got an exclusive look at the artifact, temporarily located at the Glenn Gould Foundation in Toronto, on what would have been the famed Canadian pianist's 86th birthday.

The foundation didn't know the piano existed, said executive director Brian Levine, until two sisters approached them this summer. Their parents were lifelong friends with the Goulds, and purchased the upright piano from them in 1955..."

Soundspinning: Music of Ann Southam

September 24, 2018
National

"Ann Southam cut her compositional teeth making electronic music, back in the 60's when it was called "tape music," and by 1966 she was teaching electroacoustic composition. You'd think the gap between those days and when I was taking electronic composition courses would have been enough time for the academic music world to assimilate her contribution so that she'd at least have rated a mention of her name in my classes. Maybe my teachers overlooked her because she was Canadian..."
