The Light

This was the first work I heard of Glass - 100 years after the experiment that inspired it. Though I often tire of Glass's inability to write more than one tune, this piece is well worth a listen. At last, I have found it! and this is as good a rendition as the live one I heard in 1988

First movement of 4th symphony gets an immediate 5star rating: accesible, melodic. Glass's mimimalism ripened into true music. The orchestra under Alsop is up to the challenge of playing modern classical. The brass opening to fourth movement sounds a little too much like movie-soundtrack. It gets better as it moves along, so overall 4star rating for this work.
