2-disc set!

During the 1960s and '70s, Philip Glass established himself as a leading artistic voice by creating a new musical language in the downtown loft spaces of New York's Soho district. Forty years later, Glass' early revolutionary music continues to appeal to younger generations as evidenced by Orange Mountain Music's latest release, Alter Ego Performs Philip Glass. 2006 marks the Italian new music ensemble Alter Ego's 15th anniversary as an ensemble. Across Europe, they are widely recognized as pioneers of new and experimental music. On this specially-priced two-disc set, the group performs seminal Glass works including 4 world-premiere recordings. Featured pieces include 'How Now,' '600 Lines,' 'Piece in the Shape of a Square,' 'Gradus,' 'Music in Similar Motion,' 'Strung Out' and 'Music in Contrary Motion' with a total length of over 135 minutes of glorious music.
