Philip Glass is not only—without any serious rival—the most famous living American classical composer. He is arguably the most famous such composer in the world. His instantly recognizable music is heard constantly in concert halls, opera houses, ballet performances, live theaters, and movies (including award-winning scores for The Hours, The Truman Show, and many others)—not to mention in countless homes on numerous recordings. Reaching diverse listeners from punked-out kids to Armani-clad executives who wouldn’t normally sit in the same auditorium, Glass is America’s ultimate crossover artist. For this solo piano concert at The Shedd, Glass will perform his Etudes for piano as well as other works from his unique and visionary catalogue.
