I adore this:



Skip to 2:27 to hear him play if you don't like to listen to composers speak about their work.

That is really interesting; I never knew that it had to do with Tibetan philosophies. It seems like too simple of a piece to be about that.

Beautiful! Maybe not simple enough for Tibetan philosophies!

I guess it makes sense, how he talked about the coflict between the two gods or whatever. I just always thought of the solo piano album as more of a simple beauty like a waterfall or something like that.

My fav Glass album is "The Kronos quartet plays Philip Glass"

I just picked up "Songs and Poems for Solo Cello" with Wendy Sutter its a fabulous album

Courtesy of jackhammer (thanks! )I've just listened to his solo piano stuff and 'Glassworks' with the ensemble. I thoroughly enjoyed it, although I must say I like his solo piano stuff more. I'm not usually impressed by many contemporary composers of this genre but his piano compositions are just so pretty.

I am pleased you like him. It's not everyday music but when the mood takes you it's fantastically calming.

He's good but a a lot of it sounds the same. I think you only need the classics.

Glass is good but he just can't compete with the other heroes of minimalism.
