Hey! I am quite interested about that opinion Glenn Gould occupied, that he learned every piece by learned how it sounds "only" in his head, he memorized, and after that he started to play piano. My question is? How can I learn to read music ( like watch over parts and hear the music ) ? Its so interesting 8) ...

Learn how Intervals and chords sound. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interval_(music)

Then you should be able to know how a melody sounds before you've actually heard or played it. It takes lots of time before anyone can actually hear the music like this.

I could be completely incorrect here, but I thought I had read somewhere that Glenn Gould
had a photographic memory and was able to remember the score visually. Then when playing the
piece he was able to recall what the score looked like and played from that.

In music theory classes they have ear training which can help you to eventually hear a melody in your head. Sight singing can also help this.
If you can think about where the note is on the piano and in the pitch then you can kind of get a general idea
musictheory.com has some interval training and ear training that can help you hear the music in your head as you see it on paper.
