    Well, the nice thing is that Herzeleide is no longer with us in this forum, so we needn't worry about his worthless commentary anymore.

    What do you mean? I saw he was banned for a while but now I think he's permitted to post.

    He was banned and as far as I know he is permitted to post. Notwithstanding, he has not been back, unless he has re-registered under a new name...

    And concerning Glass, although I'm not in a Glass phase right now, whenever I hear his scores I still can't stop listening. Glass is like a moving spiral: you can't take your eyes off it. It's enchanting.

    "A moving sprial." I think this is a good analogy. The effect of watching a moving sprial can be hypnotic and I think Glass's music has a similar effect.

    Itaipu is a dam in southern Brazil. To compose a cantata with the name of a dam sounds odd enough to make me giggle. I'll soon compose: "The Hoover Dam".

    Philip Glass is my favourite composer. When I first discovered his music through films (The Hours, The Truman Show) I nodded and thought to myself, "Yers, this is gooood." I looked him up and saw these other weird things called Koyaanisqatsi, Einstein On The Beach, Music In Twelve Parts and others. I listened to them. My 18-year-lifelong search was over. I had found the perfect music.

    I can listen to any Philip Glass Ensemble performance for hours on end, and I have. Einstein On The Beach and Music In Twelve Parts are both hours-long, and I've listened to them both in their entirety on many separate occasions.

    Dance 2 from Einstein On The Beach is heavenly. It sounds like a spaceship is hovering above your head, ready to pluck you from this planet and teach you the secrets of the universe. Spaceship, later in the opera, is the trip through space itself, where you see the true reality and have your perception of existence warped beyond all recognition.

    Glass's Violin Concerto with Gidon Kremer...



    It's unlike any I've heard and I like its quiet understated subtleties and the stormy turbulence of the last movement. The repetition he uses builds drama and intensity with the woodwinds bubbling beneath the melody until it fades.
