GLASS, P.: Glass Essentials (Horvath) (LP release)

This compilation celebrates Philip Glass’ 80th birthday through his unique contribution to the solo piano repertoire. It includes the sweepingly diverse and intricately melodic Etudes which are both technique-expanding and also intimately personal statements. His importance as a film composer is shown in the subtle power of his transcriptions from stage and screen music, Metamorphosis I–V, and in his BAFTA-winning score for the The Hours. And Music in Fifths—which Steve Reich called “like a freight train”—dates from his experimental years and is full of a mesmerising variety of pulse patterns.
