Last week, I celebrated Philip Glass's 75th birthday a day late, by listening to his Eighth Symphony (Dennis Russell Davies/Bruckner Orchester Linz/Orange Mountain Music). I wish I'd been able to find Satyagraha, but it is somewhere in the current chaos of my CD collection, and I could not.

Some thoughts on Glass from around the Internet, well worth reading -
Longtime readers of this blog who've been around for a while will recall that Music in Twelve Partx drove me from Davies nine parts in (and inspired my best blog posting ever) - and that I liked Appomattox and loved "Songs & Poems for Cello." Looking forward to Einstein on the Beach, you betcha.
