philipglass.com: "Through his operas, his symphonies, his
compositions for his own ensemble, and his wide-ranging
collaborations with artists ranging from Twyla Tharp to Allen
Ginsberg, Woody Allen to David Bowie, Philip Glass has had an
extraordinary and unprecedented impact upon the musical and
intellectual life of his times."
The operas – “Einstein on the Beach,” “Satyagraha,” “Akhnaten,”
and “The Voyage,” among many others – play throughout the
world’s leading houses, and rarely to an empty seat. Glass has
written music for experimental theater and for Academy
Award-winning motion pictures such as “The Hours” and Martin
Scorsese’s “Kundun,” while “Koyaanisqatsi,” his initial filmic
landscape with Godfrey Reggio and the Philip Glass Ensemble, may
be the most radical and influential mating of sound and vision
since “Fantasia.” His associations, personal and professional,
with leading rock, pop and world music artists date back to the
1960s, including the beginning of his collaborative relationship
with artist Robert Wilson. Indeed, Glass is the first composer
to win a wide, multi-generational audience in the opera house,
the concert hall, the dance world, in film and in popular music
