Glass on a vacation from glass

"Foday Musa Suso, esteemed African composer, had a great role in co-composing this music. What he & Glass did was literally work on each line of music together, writing a note or a few notes before the other had his turn at it. The result is something they were both very pleased with & which neither could have composed on his own. The work is brimming with Glass's repeated figures, but it's not music you might expect from him. Exotic, dry, often ethereal, it'll coat your dreams at night with a fine white sand."
It's simply beautiful...

"Well, I simply love Philip Glass' music and I think 'The Screens' is one of the most beautiful pieces he ever composed. It was composed as incidental music for a Jean Genet play and has french feel to it (the style is quite similar to the style of his String Quartet No.5, La Belle et la Bete and the Saxophone Quartet Concerto) - and it's very lyrical. Apart from that I liked the contrast between Suso's and Glass' music a lot. The 'France' pieces and 'Night on the Balcony' are especially ravishing beautiful."
Doesn't come together quite as well

"I enjoy every one of my 15 or so PG cds, but this one didn't quite come together as well as I would have expected. There seems to be a separation between the different styles. Perhaps I just need to give it another chance. I do prefer, however the Kundun sdtk, Dracula, Koyaanisquattsi and Akhenaten first. Heroes is cool too."
