PAGE EIGHT:RAT RACE
They never sat down together to talk. Heinz and Glen Gould spoke in the hallways of the CBC building. Heinz would snatch a moment from his crazy, busy day. Glen Gould seemed never in a rush. How he acquired Heinz's phone number was a mystery. He and Karen were firm and the late night calls ended. He liked the guy. Didn't want to turn him away. Heinz told him about his mother's musical talent and accomplishments. Glen Gould was impressed with the Leipzig Conservatory. Heinz did not know if he knew about the crippling accident. No questions, no answers. After the first recording, Heinz told Glen Gould the music was played too quickly.
