Mr. GOULD (1932-1982) 😃
Gould is well-known for his eccentricities, from his unusual musical interpretations and mannerisms at the keyboard (for example he often swayed his torso in a clockwise motion and also hummed while playing) to aspects of his own lifestyle, like his famous scarf. He liked warm temperatures, for example in his recording studio, and outside he was once arrested while sitting on a bench after being mistaken for a vagrant because of his attire of coat(s), hat and mittens. He also strongly disliked being touched. He received many awards, both before and after hid death, but didn't seem to really care because he loathed competition in music.

Those were the days when a group of about 50 people used to play with the instruments to create the real music.
Both of them have become a kind of legendary combination, in spite of Gould's extreme youth and Bach's extreme age.
