from the Brisbane Times:
"Described by some as one of the world's most important composers,
Glass crinkles his face in distaste at the idea he might think of
himself this way. "No, I never do that!" he says.
"You know, this thing about being an important composer …
It's a bunch of nonsense. That's just how it appears right now. You
don't know what people are going to be listening to in 30 years. Will
they still be listening to Einstein on the Beach? I have no
idea. That doesn't mean there's something wrong with it. It happens to
composers all the time. They get forgotten for maybe 20 or 30 years,
and then they're remembered again.""
