Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, and love is in the air here at BF HQ – we’re currently enamoured with Philip Glass!
In preparation for his opera The Perfect American coming to QPAC this September, we’re immersing ourselves in his beautifully repetitive melodies. This week’s office favourites have included Glassworks by the Philip Glass Ensemble and Symphony No. 4 a.k.a. Heroes Symphony, based on the David Bowie album Heroes.
Keep your eye on our Facebook page over the coming months, where we’ll be sharing more of Glass’ prolific back catalogue. Given that he’s composed operas, symphonies, concertos, solo works, chamber music, musical theatre works and film scores; and has collaborated with the likes of Paul Simon, Linda Ronstadt, Yo-Yo Ma, Suzanne Vega, Mick Jagger, Leonard Cohen, David Byrne and Aphex Twin (to name just a few!), there’s a lot to share.
We’re certain you’ll fall in love with him too!
