  • About This Album

    Despite their having now earned a place in the repertory, the unbridled audacity of these groundbreaking early works by Glass cannot be overestimated. Reductive in form, melodic content, and harmonic language, they present a strikingly original compositional perspective that marked the beginning of the rise of the Minimalist aesthetic that came to dominate the American musical landscape.
