Just the most beautiful music by Glass,
This review is from: Glass: Akhnaten - An Opera in Three Acts (Audio CD)
I have to admit at the outset that I am a massive fan of Glass. I have seen him conducting his own filmscores, and have followed his work nearly 20 years.
This is one of the best operas composed in the 20th century, and one of Glass's finest pieces.
Egypt is a great subject for opera, and Akhnaten was one of Egypt's most fascinating pharaohs. Never have the female and male voice sounded so haunting. This is truly a work to savour.
