Notes & Reviews:

Philip Glass is one of the most innovative contemporary composers, and has made a considerable reputation for himself in the field of composition now generally referred to as minimalism. The repeated rhythms, using small cells of music, create fascinating sound patterns that are illuminated with brilliant shafts of tonal colours. For anyone who has not yet taken the plunge and become aquainted with this important composer's surprisingly lyrical music, this is an excellent opportunity.
