philip glass

everyone seems to love philip glass' early stuff, but disregards his later material (everything after einstein on the beach). i don't understand...i appreciate the soundtracks to the various movies that he scored and so on. yes, they kind of represent a watered down version of philip glass, but the signature style is still there...he stayed true to his vision as much as steve reich did (who gets much more respect from music lovers). i would agree that the early pieces are the best, but lazy journalism has since ruined his reputation as a great composer...i figure that lab fans would have something to say about this, because songs like kibernetica babicka might as well be glass tracks...

Re: philip glass

I had never heard of him until recently upon reading a review of a career spanning boxed-set. I'm intrigued!

Where's the best place to start?

Re: philip glass

It's strange that Glass' later works are considered inferior. I personally like the scores for Qatsi trilogy. I don't think I've heard Einstein on the Beach yet. What other early stuff would you recommend? I think I've heard some organ pieces, but what else?

Re: philip glass

I too am a fan of his earlier works while not up to date on the later works. I'm more of a Steve Reich guy, but I always liked the album Glassworks (1982), but the Modern Love Waltz for solo piano is my favorite. It's sounds fun to play too. Glass even arranged an orchestral version of Icct Hedral by Aphex Twin that's worth a listen.

Re: my friend

has an affinity to gLASS koyanisquatsi. Plays this DVD to awake daily. I recall glass as a child as monotonous dance music persnickety, choiceful but worthy. ha case in point.
when i view koyanisquatsi, media serving throw- together, sufficient commercialism, I'm called to promote as a superficial facia effacer will profice. disgusting. base brilliance.

I need more glass.
