Philip Glass interview video

Postby jarkko » Thu Jan 22, 2009 12:00 pm

Thanks to Antti Vanhanen for this link: http://www.euronews.net/en/article/08/1 ... lip-glass/
Watch the 4 min interview with Philip Glass
In an exclusive interview with euronews, Philip Glass talks about the challenge of setting music to Leonard Cohen’s poetry – a collection, 20 years in the making, of some 167 poems and 43 original illustrations by Cohen himself. Glass was recently in Madrid where he performed at the Autumn Festival.

Thank you Jarkko for this. This is a tribute that merges two incredibley creative minds and should be made available on CD or DVD. Do you know if this will happen?

Kindest regards,
Mary

Thank you Jarkko! Because of the excellent work by you and your associates, this website is so fantastic and but also so huge, it is a little difficult to take in everything (even though I have been following it for a number of years before I registered) unless one had become a member since the beginning. There is a definite advantage to registering which I did not realize, one of which is the fact that once you log in on the forum, it is so much easier to follow the posts because items that one hasn't read are highlighted. So, I apologize for having asked a question that took up your valuable time and that with a bit of research I would have discovered on my own :oops: .
Warmest regards,
Mary

These days, Glass is away from New York touring for about two months each year. He recently spent a week in California, which included concerts with Patti Smith and another with Leonard Cohen, with whom he worked on The Book of Longing.

Now back home, he is finishing his next opera, based on the life of the 17th-century astronomer Johannes Kepler, to be premiered in Austria, where Kepler was a teacher, in September. He is also in the early stages of an opera about Walt Disney, to be premiered, again in Europe, in 2012...

A concert with LC? What does this mean? Did he attend a concert or is he working on a concert performance with LC :? ?

Best regards,
Mary

This looks very interesting, and with lots of potential!
Though I do wish Steve Reich would have done something like that :)
Any one here heard the full piece and care to comment on it?
