The central movement of this symphony is something really special. Glass has created here a whole new sound world, quite unlike any other music from Glass or any one else. It is very beautiful, somehow very vulnerable and fragile. The texture has a slightly clumsy nature, in a very appealing and touching way. You would need to hear it to see what I mean. I think it one of the very best things he has ever done.

It is impressive that Glass at a relatively advanced age is able to break through to brand new ground. And pleasing that innovation is still happening (much 'establishment' music coming from academically approved composers seemingly finds it hard to imagine anything new).

While some of the music has immediate appeal, it does require repeated and concentrated listening to grasp properly. I am sure some listeners may jump to the conclusion that it lacks depth or repeats what Glass did before on the basis of a single superficial hearing. Worthwhile music takes effort.

I recently sat slightly frustrated through a performance of Bruckner 9 (by Haikink and the Vienna Philharmonic) at the proms. There is no doubt in my mind which 9th is the greater!

Highly recommended to those in search of new sounds of wonder and delight!

This is one of his finest compositions, if you already have a passion for Glass' music then this is a must for your collection, if you don't then listen to the second movement to be found on Youtube and be converted.

Excellent symphony from Mr Glass- I loved all of the themes and played it repeatedly- just to make sure that I know it!
