’twas many years now that I was first introduced to the
music of Philip Glass via a Greek friend of a friend who knew I appreciated
movie scores. This event transpired in Providence R.I and the Greek’s name
was Thanasis. He may have misspelled Phillip Glass and
Koyaniskqqatsy and of course this movie score was totally unlike those I
had been a fan of, and then there was an initial allergic reaction to the music which made me almost dismiss the whole thing. Then a short time after, I was further exposed, in a
college music appreciation class no less, to Glassworks. The rest, for
my part, is history.
Most people I talk to can clearly remember their first experience. Please take the time to
