“A delightful program of Glass discoveries (along with some more familiar selections). At the end, the audience stood and applauded a true ensemble effort.”
Nico Muhly and Friends
Investigate the Glass Archive
Beginning as a student, the now-acclaimed composer Nico Muhly worked for eight years as an intern, archivist, editor, and assistant conductor for veteran minimalist composer Philip Glass. Lesser Known is the product of Muhly’s discoveries during that formative experience and features his own new arrangements and reinterpretations of obscure gems drawn from the elder composer’s chamber works, film scores, operas, and theater pieces. Muhly performs on keyboards and is joined by a cohort of his esteemed new-music peers including flutist Alex Sopp and violist and podcast host Nadia Sirota. “His musicians played and sang superbly, almost as agile as Glass’s own ensemble…the music shimmered and danced, with ample sensitivity to the sad, wistful aura that Glass can evoke” (The New York Times).
