Reviews: Glass in Brooklyn; No.9 in the UK; and the lead up to “Overture for 2012”

For the NY Times, Zachary Woolfe reviews the first of three nights at "Issue Project Room" in Brooklyn where Philip Glass is doing three nights of fundraising performances with an eclectic lineup. 

The Guardian UK favorably, or should I say favourably reviews Glass' latest symphony and reminds us that No.10 is only a short wait away.

And Anne Midgette from the Washington Post has a piece about the run-up to "Overture for 2012" which Glass composed for the Bicentennial of the end of the war of 1812 which will receive simultaneous premieres in Canada with the Toronto Symphony and in Glass' hometown of Baltimore with the BSO under long-time Glass champion Marin Alsop.
