So apparently I have a fascination with capturing great artists and their pianos at the NAC. First I shot a photo of Canadian jazz legend Oscar Peterson, and today I bring you one of Glenn Gould, one of the best-known and most celebrated classical pianists of the 20th century. Actually what I am bringing you is a photo of Gould’s favorite piano, the Steinway CD 318, which is located in a permanent display at the mezzanine of the National Arts Centre.

I know, I’m really late with today’s photo. I was hoping to post something this morning while I was still at my hotel in Toronto, but I ran out of time. So instead, you get this photo of the Convention Centre I shot upon my return to Ottawa tonight. I hope you enjoy and I hope you all had a great weekend!   [google_map address=’126′ coordinates=’45.423644,-75.693678′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]

Today’s photo is of none other than Oscar Peterson, the Canadian Jazz Legend.  His biography speaks for itself so I won’t bother with a history lesson.
