The Philip Glass Ensemble- Music in Eight Parts & Other Works
What: The Philip Glass Ensemble, the group formed by the legendary American composer in 1968 as a laboratory for his experimental music, lands at the Stavros Niarchos Hall for a one-off pre-Christmas concert that will take us into the great composer’s unique musical universe.
In the SNFCC program, Music in Eight Parts will be joined by other landmark compositions for Philip Glass and the history of contemporary music: selections from the operas Einstein on the Beach and The Photographer, the film score Koyaanisqatsi, and Glassworks, the composer’s luminous calling card.
