Knock knock.... who's there?
Phillip Glass.

Phillip Glass.

Sorry I love that joke... But I also love Phillip glass. His Violin Concerto is one of his best pieces. I've heard The Hours is his best movie score but I've yet to find it at a record store! Grrr.... On the subject of PG, does anyone like Steve Reich? I know these two are always mentioned in the same breath but for good reason. His Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices, and Organ is one of my favorite pieces of music of all time.

Is that Akhnaten? Superb album. His Cello Octet Glass Reflections is very good as well.

Reich is one of my favourite artistes. I have 11 of his recordings. I first heard Come Out as a youngster in the late 70's and was spellbound. It took me until the last few years to discover who had done that and once discovered I have become a huge admirer. I don't have Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices, and Organ though. I have always thought that Remixed is a good starting point for the beginner. Have you heard Different Trains? I adore it.

Actually Different Trains is one of my least favorite... I'm not a huge fan of the samples thing. But I have just recently checked out "You Are (Variations)" and that's also pretty incredible.

I like Reich a lot but I think I prefer Glass. I have Desert Music, Different Trains, Music for 18 Musicians, Electric Counterpoint, and the Triple Quartet. I like his less electronic work more. I've recently been listening to some of his piano work like Piano Phase and Six Pianos and they're pretty amazing.

'Solo Piano' is absolutely sublime.
