a 2CD set of repertoire from the PGE's 40-year career. Previously
released as an iTunes only download, this live-recording from a concert in
Monterey Mexico in 2006 features music from "Music in 12
Parts," "In the Upper Room," "Koyaanisqatsi,"
"Einstein on the Beach," "The Photographer,"
"Glassworks," "Powaqqatsi," and much more with a total time of over 100

Philip Glass Ensemble was formed in the late 1960s as a vehicle for Philip
Glass’ new music. The image of the
group, an ensemble of keyboards and winds, became the iconic visual image for Philip Glass as a performer. The ensemble has consistently toured
the world including complete performances of the seminal Music in 12
Parts, and as the
‘orchestra’ for the most groundbreaking opera of the 20th Century,
Einstein on the Beach.
