Summary "Glenn was a child who knew his own mind -- he liked boats but did not like fishing; he enjoyed puns and pranks but did not like bullying; he loved learning but did not like school ... but more than anything else he loved to play the piano. Glenn had a professional performing career by the time he was fifteen; he gave concerts all over the world in his twenties. He became best known for his interpretation of Bach's Goldberg Variations. But Glenn grew to dislike concerts -- the hall was too cold, or he didn't feel well, or the audience made too much noise (he didn't even like their applause!). He discovered that when he played and recorded music in an empty concert hall, he could make it sound exactly the way he wanted. He could do what he loved best, while being completely himself." -- Provided by publisher.
