LA Times Magazine – Critic’s Choices

Music  |  MARK SWED  |  Times music critic

“Philip Glass and Robert Wilson: Monsters of Grace” (Orange
Mountain Music) and “Philip Glass: Book of Longing” (Orange
Mountain Music). Everyone’s got something to say about Philip
Glass—the ninth-greatest genius in the world (according to one British
newspaper), Hollywood sellout or opera bore. How about just a
sensitive, moody, sometimes profound composer? “Monsters of Grace” is
Rumi poetry made luminous. “Book of Longing” is a new cycle of Leonard
Cohen poems touchingly handled. Beautiful artwork and deluxe packaging
are a bonus. (source)
