The American composer performs his now complete twenty …tudes for Piano, alongside pianists Maki Namekawa, Timo Andres, Clare Hammond and Vikingur ”lafsson.

An introspective portrait of the composer over two decades, The …tudes is an immersive journey into one composerís personal soundscape as expressed in the depth and breadth of a single instrument.

Philip Glass started writing this series of twenty piano pieces in the mid-90s and the final four ťtudes were commissioned in celebration of Glassís 75th birthday in 2012. It is a body of work that has a broad range of dynamics, tempo and emotion.
