Philip Glass, Composer

Sold my complete collexion of Glass' opera Akenhaten, Einstein on the Beach, Satyagraha(Ghandi) when i moved to San Sebastiane to live (Spain) regrettably. Had chance to have lunch w him at vegan resurant Shakahari in melbourne Australia, but got waylaid and overwaed (too much to say to him too little time). Love all his work saw him coduct live Powwaskatsi/ Koyanaskatsi Melbourne recital centre. Really only know him as the guy who connected Robert DeNiro to cable as student in tribeca NYC. ...

I had believed I already posted this but perhaps not. Either way it's worth a watch:

This article from the NYT is more about CD box sets than Philip Glass but I thought it was worth a post. Looks like $100 will get you the latest best of box. Thanks Erick for telling me about it...

Hey eveyrone, i recently saw the WATCHMEN movie and heard the Philip Glass Orchestra song "Pruit Igoe & Prophecies" and thought it was AWESOME!! Check it out here: watchmenmusic.com

Now as a Philip Glass rookie what are some other good tracks to check out?
Any good ideas are greatly appreciated

About 2 years ago I attended the premiere of the new soundtrack for Tod Browning's 1931 horror classic, Dracula at an old converted synagogue on the lower east side. It was played on a piano, as I guess was the original score. I understand the original score was lost and Glass was commissioned to create a new score to commemorate an important anniversary of the film. The music was terrific, especially in the context of the film. It was later re-scored for a string quartet and recorded by Kronos. I haven't heard the latter with the movie but both are piano and quartet are available on Amazon and both are really terrific music.

The other great recent experience with Glass's music was Sataygraha at the Met. I don't think there is a recording and it will probably be a long time before it comes back but if it does DON'T MISS IT!

I do recall one complete recording of Satyagraha on CBS that came out in the 80's and, while out of print, you can get a copy (new/used on Amazon, or as ArkivMusic re-issue) online. A number of excerpts from it are also available on a few other recordings.

Here is a link to the complete recording. (re-issue)

Here is a link on Amazon - pre-owned new/used copies.

Other recordings of various excerpts appear on this list: (scroll down to see Satyagraha)

The "Songs from Liquid Days" are a remarkable collaboration between Glass (music) and Paul Simon, Suzanne Vega, David Byrne and Laurie Anderson (lyrics), with excellent vocal performances from Linda Ronstadt, the Roches, and others.

I'm also fond of "Einstein on the Beach." You may find much of that music similar to what you've heard in "Pruit Igoe & Prophecies"
