In my ongoing series on how certain pieces of music both past and present bear similarities to the music of Philip Glass, I present to you pop quiz No.4.
Here is an example of what is pretty obviously a film score from the past 10 years. Personally this is a composer I don't really care for much and I'll leave it at that. To me things like this are at best categorized as parody…I wonder how this guy makes a living working on the largest of movies while other more original and artistically inclined composers don't get at shot at the largest canvases. I can just picture the director of this film exclaiming to this composer "Perfect, you're a genious!"
The first to guess the right answer gets a nice Christmas gift…a copy of the new recording of Maria Bachmann performing the Glass Violin Sonata.
