  • About This Album

    Glass contributes the score to the 1996 adaptation of Joseph Conrad's novel by Oscar-winning writer-director Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons). "Mining a mysterious, darkly lyrical vein," says Billboard, "Glass has fashioned for the soundtrack some of his most alluring, involving music since his Violin Concerto."
