Philip Glass Live – The Complete Piano Etudes
January 28, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
“Seeing the work of two decades compressed into an evening [of Piano Etudes] was immensely satisfying as America’s greatest living composer stakes his claim for immortality.”
Philip Glass conceived The Complete Piano Etudes as a set of twenty works for solo piano in order to expand his piano technique. In the 1990s Glass composed sixteen of the etudes with each taking a unique approach to the instrument. After a decade, the final four piano etudes were commissioned in celebration of Glass’s 75th birthday and premiered in Perth, Australia in 2013. Glass and international guest pianists Vicky Chow (USA/Canada), Jenny Lin (USA), Jónas Sen (Iceland), and Madeline Hildebrand (Winnipeg) will perform The Complete Piano Etudes in an evening of master piano works for the 21st century.
