An introduction to the life and work of American minimalist composer Philip Glass.

Few living composers have built such a loyal and devoted following as the American Philip Glass, who turns 80 this year. Celebrated as one of the most influential of the Minimalist composers, Glass is the most performed opera composer of our time, but also a much sought-after film composer and symphonist.

In what is bound to be an enormously popular Total Immersion day, discover the many sides of Philip Glass, including some of the music that influenced him.
