Album Notes

Born in Baltimore, Maryland on January 31, 1937, Philip Glass began music lessons at age six. At 19, Glass graduated from the University of Chicago with majors in mathematics and philosophy. Determined to become a composer, he moved to New York and attended the Julliard School. At age 23, was living in Paris and spent two years of intensive study under Nadia Boulanger. In Paris, he was hired by a filmmaker to transcribe the Indian music of Ravi Shankar into notation readable to western musicians. In the process, he discovered the techniques of Indian music. After researching music in North Africa, India and the Himalayas, he returned to New York, renouncing his previous music, and applying eastern techniques to his own work. By 1974, Glass had involved himself in a number of significant and innovative projects. This period culminated in Music in Twelve Parts, followed by the landmark opera, Einstein on the Beach created with Robert Wilson in 1976. Since Einstein, Glass has expanded his repertoire to include music for opera, dance, theater, chamber ensemble, orchestra, and film. His most recent film score for Stephen Daldry’s The Hours received Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations.

Quanto è brava Alessandra!
Complimenti vivissimi per la grande interpretazione di queste meravigliose musiche ad Alessandra Celletti.
Un vero capolavoro artistico questo album.Riesce con il suo pianismo a creare dei fantastici chiaro-scuri ed a mettere in risalto le note più importanti dei brani.
Ubi maior minor cessat!

An intimate introduction
"An intimate introduction to Glass music skillfully played."

John Pitt (Editor, New Classics - UK)

This album is played with expression
"This album is played with expression and conviction by the gifted young Italian pianist Alessandra Celletti"

john stErling

a revelation and revolution of sound
alessandra celletti raises the bar with every new release, and her interpretations of phillip glass's work is nothing short of astonishing... as with all of celletti's releases, her joy in playing her piano shines throughout the program, sombre and mysterious, playful and adventurous, familiar, yet alien in approach and execution... an absolute must for anyone with open ears and an open mind.....
