Happy New Year everyone. Ahem, I think it's safe to say 2008 can/will be/should be forgotten for a variety of reasons. So, putting it safely behind us we look forward. I'm thankful for all the support in the past year of this blog.
We continue to move ahead. Let's start off with the good news. Orange Mountain Music will be releasing the soundtrack album to the Scott Hicks documentary GLASS: A Portrait of Philip in Twelve Parts later this month on iTunes and Amazon.
At the end of the month Philip Glass (and Schubert) will celebrate his 72nd Birthday. This month is a failry exciting one on the PhilipGlass.com Calendar. Already, on New Year's Day there was a performance of the mysterious unrecorded Symphony No.7 "Toltec." Though I haven't seen a review of th performance in Linz.
Also to start the New Year, here is an interview from Dec.22nd on WNYC with Philip Glass on the Leonard Lopate Show and here is a short video which was done for the Brooklyn Academy of Music. I believe BAM will be producing a Glass show of some kind in the next year but I will wait for an official announcement on that.
We move ahead, to infinity! and beyond!
