PHILIP GLASS  

(b 1937 )

Through his operas, symphonies, compositions for his own ensemble, and collaborations with artists ranging from Twyla Tharp to Allen Ginsberg, and from Woody Allen to David Bowie, Philip Glass has had an extraordinary and unprecedented impact upon the musical and intellectual life of his times. His opera The Perfect American, based on the life of Walt Disney, premièred in January 2013 at Teatro Real Madrid and the English National Opera. Another opera, The Lost, premièred at the Landestheater Linz in April 2013. His Ninth Symphony had its US première at Carnegie Hall on his 75th birthday in 2012, and his Tenth Symphony premièred in France in August 2012. Current commissions include the recently completed Two Movements for Four Pianos, String Quartet No. 6 for the Kronos Quartet, an orchestral song cycle for Angelique Kidjo, and an opera based on Franz Kafka’s The Trial.
