Philip Glass
at Futuresonic 2009


16 May, RNCM, Manchester

Etudes and Other Work for Solo Piano

Simultaneously stirring and meditative, an evening of Philip Glass' solo piano is a rare opportunity to experience this influential composer's work first-hand. A special event in an intimate venue, this concert features his most recent Etudes for piano as well as classics in Glass' repertoire, and provides a glimpse into the intricacies of the composer's work in its most elemental form. Speaking from the piano bench, Glass personally introduces the programme. An intimate and unique look at a visionary at work, this evening provides a fond re-acquaintance for Glass fans and a perfect introduction for a new audience.
