  1. So excited for this! Really love this series and I look forward to future releases (and concertos!) as well.
    By the way, Wikipedia also lists a horn concerto by Glass. Is it real or just a joke?

  2. From the description:
    “The Fourth Volume documenting the concertos by Philip Glass, this volume presents a brand new recording of the composers 2010 commission from the Nederlands Dans Theater, a Double Concerto for Violin, Cello and Orchestra featuring soloists Tim Fain and Wendy Sutter under the direction of Maestro Jurjen Hempel. The second concerto is the first piano concerto by Glass, the Tirol Concerto for Piano and String Orchestra performed by the Stuttgart Chamber Orchester with Dennis Russell Davies conducting from the keyboard. ”

  3. Has this release been delayed; Amazon now slates it’s release date as Oct. 11? Will it be available sooner on iTunes (I’m sooo impatient!)?

  4. I’m very happy with this release. After enjoying the live performance of Double Concerto , I hoped that this recording would be released.Looking forward to Oct.11.
