About Philip Glass
Philip Glass is one of the highest profile composers writing “classical” music today, he is often said to be one of the most influential composers of the late 20th century. His music is also often controversially described as minimalist. He has written works for the musical group which he founded, the Philip Glass Ensemble (with which he still performs on keyboards), as well as operas, musical theatre works, ten symphonies, eleven concertos, solo works, chamber music including string quartets and instrumental sonatas, and film scores. Three of his film scores have been nominated for Academy Awards
