Philip Glass Ensemble

The world-renowned Philip Glass Ensemble is coming from New York to Uppsala to perform one of the American minimalist’s most popular works, “Glassworks” – which has never been performed in its entirety outside of New York City – along with other highlights from their extensive repertoire.

After composing large-scale operas and orchestral works, “Glassworks” marked Philip Glass’s first – and highly successful – attempt at creating a more pop-oriented and “Walkman-friendly” music, which was much more accessible and easy to listen to for a broader audience. After the intermission, the ensemble will perform pieces from some of Glass’s greatest operas, which, combined with “Glassworks,” provide a representative picture and experience of the composer’s and his ensemble’s shared repertoire.
