Philip Glass Biography - Genre-Spanning Compositions
This performer's early musical education came from the unsold records at his father's music store, which at the time included modern pieces and Western classical music - an influence that can still be felt in his work to this day. He went on to study alongside Steve Reich at the Juilliard School of Music, where he won the BMI Foundation's Student Composer Awards. Having previously received tuition under Milhaud, Glass was deeply affected and inspired by the sounds of the score for Chappaqua. After attending a performance in the late '60s by old classmate Reich, the newly-inspired composer simplified his own style and formed an ensemble with Reich and others to explore his new minimalist inclinations. From here on he would have to fight to create a space where he wouldn't be labelled simply as a "minimalist" composer - but rather an open-minded classicist.
Within the last quarter of a decade the revered classical artist has added more then twenty operas, two piano concertos, eight symphonies and a handful of soundtracks to his repertoire. Considered an expert on composing, he's invited to perform, lecture and teach across the world, whether solo or as part of his ensemble and can boast of Brian Eno and David Bowie as admirers of his work.
