a 3cd overview of the composer’s prolific output that led to his rise as a cultural icon from the late 70s to the early 90s.

released to celebrate glass’ 75th birthday, ‘the essential philip glass’ encompasses generous selections from the 3 seminal “portrait operas” (‘einstein on the beach’, ‘satyagraha’ & ‘akhnaten’) that established glass as a serious, innovative classical composer, dance scores for twyla tharp (‘in the upper room’) & jerome robbins (‘songs from liquid days’), theatre works (‘the photographer’), plus music for solo piano & collaborations with artists as wide-ranging as suzanne vega, linda ronstadt, the kronos quartet & yo-yo ma.
