5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic album, 30 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Glass: Solo Piano (Audio CD)
This is truly a fantastic album, and a great introduction to arguably the greatest living composer.

As the title suggests, it's just Glass and his piano playing, so don't expect any sweeping strings or other instruments at all. The pace of the album is brilliant, with each of the pieces sounding like a more complex version of the last (which essentially they are), ranging from the very simple Metamorphosis One through to Four (Five is simply One with slightly different use of the pedals) and onto the last two tracks which follow a similar pattern.

Don't expect this to be like Beethoven or Chopin, it is repetitive and certainly far simpler musically, but I've found it to be an album for almost any mood - a lazy summer afternoon, lying in bed trying to sleep, working, I pretty much haven't found a situation where I listen to this and want to prematurely stop the album.

This is definitely worth the buy, and I would recommend trying out some more Glass if you are a fan.
