‘The most powerful composer of our time’¦what Glass is doing is changing the face of music for our time and all time.’ – The Daily Telegraph

‘Glass’s Etudes waxed delicate and grandiose, sultry and melancholy, ghostly and hard-edged.’ – The New York Times

‘Few composers of our time have dismantled the barriers between the music of the people and the music of the elite more consistently and creatively than Philip Glass. Mr Glass’s music may be minimalist, but his achievement is massive.’ – The Guardian

Simultaneously stirring and meditative, an evening of Philip Glass’ solo piano is a rare opportunity to experience this influential composer’s work firsthand. Debuting a program that features his most recent Etudes for piano as well as classics in Glass’ repertoire, this concert provides a glimpse into the intricacies of the composer’s work in its most elemental form. Speaking from the piano bench, Glass personally introduces the program. An intimate and unique look at a visionary at work, this evening will provide a fond re-acquaintance for Glass fans and a perfect introduction for new audiences.
