Description
With the success of this 1976 opera, Philip Glass quickly became known as one of America's most vital and creative composers. Devoid of a traditional plot, Glass's sprawling masterwork incorporates text by dancer Lucinda Childs and autistic artist Christopher Knowles with Albert Einstein's theories and selected images from his life to craft an engaging piece that is perhaps unique in classical music. Featuring meditations on pop culture, science, AM radio, and nuclear weapons, the individual sections include "Mr. Bojangles," "Spaceship," and "Prematurely Air-Conditioned Supermarket." Scored for the five members of the Glass Ensemble and performed here by them as well, this 1979 recording is directed by Glass's longtime collaborator Michael Riesman.
