Hear the Echoes Philip Glass Podcast
It’s hard for me to think of Philip Glass at 76. Even though he’s a lot older than me, I still think of him as a composer who I came up with through music. Philip Glass, Steve Reich and Terry Riley all helped bring me over from rock into a different music world. It seems like they just haven’t been around long enough to be septuagenarians. None of them are taking the usual route of composers their age of becoming elders and teachers. Glass in particular is more active in more forms than ever. His recent film scores include Elena, The Illusionist and Notes On A Scandal. His latest opera is The Perfect American, based on the life of Walt Disney. At 76, Philip Glass is looking like he’s just hitting his stride. We’ve interviewed Glass many times over the years. This week, we took a look back at maximum minimalism with Philip Glass.
