Philip Glass on Words Without Music (The John Adams Institute)

zaterdag 20 augustus 2016 20:30 tot zaterdag 20 augustus 2016 22:00
| | | |

We are honored to have one of the most influential composers of the 20th century on the John Adams program. Philip Glass is the first composer to win a wide, multi-generational audience not only in the opera house and the concert hall, but also in the dance world, in film and in popular music – simultaneously. He is known as an “American minimalist”, writing pulsating rhythms and repetitive, slowly changing harmonies with long, overarching tunes. Mr. Glass will take the John Adams stage to talk about his memoir Words Without Music, a fascinating chronicle of a life spent pursuing the absolute freedom of musical expression. Join us for an evening with one of most extraordinary artists of our time.

N.B. Previously our critic Lodewijk Brunt reviewed Words Without Music.

Glass will be joined by harpist Lavinia Meijer and pianist Feico Deutekom.
