Notes & Reviews:

"He takes a memorable, expansive melody with a Latin rhythmic vitality and flavor, and spins it out over a long time span, in this case 23 minutes. Glass' piece rises to less of a frenzied climax than Boléro; the arc of its intensity is more gently contoured. Its steady (but metrically complex) rhythm at a relaxed tempo, combined with languid, lyrical melodic material and lush harmonies make it a serene and lulling piece that feels not a moment too long. It should have strong appeal for the listener who savors sustained, meditative music, and doesn't demand a high level of complexity or dramatic musical development. Glass veteran Dennis Russell Davies leads the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra in a radiant performance." -All Music Guide
