Greek Gould Anthology enters Political Science Curriculum

Stefanos Theodoridis’ best-selling Greek anthology of Gould’s writings, Glenn Gould, Reflections on Music (Nefeli Publishing, 2012) has now entered the academic circles at Aristotle University, Thessaloniki.  The book was selected by political sciences professor Dr. Spiros Marketos as part of the materials for his course, “Music, History, Politics.” 

Mr. Theodoridis believes that it is only a matter of time before Greek musicology departments follow to incorporate the Gould anthology into their own course materials. 

“But for the moment, the connection with political sciences seems perfectly fitting with Gould’s broad culture and interests such as politics, history, aesthetics, theology, sociology, ethics,” said Theodoridis. The author is elated to see the adoption of Gould studies and the increasing awareness of Gould in Greece—“the land that gave birth – among so many other things – to logic, Gould’s treasured way of thinking!”  

Glenn Gould, Reflections on Music was long-listed for the 2013 Greek Literary Translation Awards.  

Stefanos Theodoridis is a musician, translator of classical music books, piano pedagogy researcher and passionate Glenn Gould scholar living in Athens, Greece. He hopes to yield more publications with his ongoing Glenn Gould research.  For more information on how to support Stefanos' academic research work in Canada and abroad, contact him by email
