Glenn Gould Prize


Glenn Gould Prize

The Glenn Gould Prize is an international award bestowed by the Glenn Gould Foundation in memory of noted Canadian pianist Glenn Gould. It is awarded every third year to a living individual in recognition of his/her contributions to music and communication.

Prize laureates receive a purse of C$50,000, and are given the responsibility of naming the recipient of the City of Toronto-Glenn Gould International Protégé Prize in Music. Protégés receive C$15,000.

Both Laureates and Protégés receive a bronze statuette of Glenn Gould designed by Canadian artist Ruth Abernathy. In addition, a portrait of each Laureate is displayed in Toronto at the Glenn Gould Studio of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
