Philip Glass   Piano Etudes

“There is something about the music of Glass that defies our expectations, particularly when it comes to time and inevitability. The fluidity of this music is an instantly recognizable trademark of Glass’s works and his unapologetic embracing of triads and tonality have set him apart from most other composers of his generation. These pieces were a kind of personal meditation and soundtrack for the unforgettable year that was 2020.” ~ Leslie Dala
