Exemplifies Hegel's thinking on musical sound as at once passive and active, plastic and dynamic, as material and as an agent, as objective and ideal. One of the most important composers of modern times, this music is a relief from the neo-Baroqueism of Nyman or the quasi-Romanticism of Adams.

Although I always enjoy PG, there are other recordings I'll listen to again.

sorry Philip, but this is the end. I've just spend £14 on a rehash of almost everything you've ever written, which seems to be what you've been doing now for far too long. I begin to suspect that somewhere in your composition classes a tutor told you you should have an individual voice, and you took it much too much to heart. A few bars of admittedly pleasant new music really is not enough.

Something old; Something new 16 Dec. 2011
By Marvin Cohodas - Published on Amazon.com
This disk includes two of Philip Glass's most significant concerti. This recording of his first Piano Concerto (Tirol Concerto for Piano and Orchestra) has been issued previously under another label, but is included here as part of a comprehensive catalogue of Glass concerti. This early concerto is quite beautiful, especially the soulful second movement, and wonderfully performed by Dennis Russell Davies. Something new is the Double Concerto for Violin and Cello, which premiered in 2010.

The Double Concerto is the second Glass concerto to introduce a new format with the flexibility of extracting solo pieces if an orchestra is not available. As in the Second Violin Concerto (American Four Seasons), sections with orchestra alternate with solo sections, here duets between cello and violin. The format is different however in that an ending with fireworks was not required, so the final section is a duet that ends on the peaceful tone that Glass has recently favored for concerti.

In both concerti the alternation of soloist and full orchestral accompaniment works extremely well, providing a very new kind of rhythm with a lot of potential for varied effects. As an example, and my favourite part of the Double Concerto, the second duet begins with soloists alternating with short musical fragments. As their contributions gradually become longer, they begin to overlap. When they finally join completely in a long, sweeping melody the effect is magical. The tone and harmony of this melodic conclusion is maintained as the second orchestral section begins with a dance-like rhythm. But in this section the theme gradually develops from a dance into a stately hymn and ultimately a blaring march that, given the snare drum accompaniment, seems to me like an outcry against the horrors of war. The tone then softens and same movement ends in a calm passage for soloists that leads nicely into the following soloist duet. This combination of firm structure and lyricism has long been a Glass hallmark and the Double Concerto represents an outstanding example.

Philip Glass The Concerto Project.Vol.IV. 10 Aug. 2013
By aussie - Published on Amazon.com

First class performances of great music!. As always, Glass never ceases to amaze. Each opus, while it contains the characteristics of his writing, still surprises you. Truly a great composer and this recording does great justice to his music.
