Philip Glass performs work for solo piano these two nights, joined by a cross-section of notable guest pianists culled from the worlds of classical music and jazz. After nearly two decades of recordings and performances documenting his compositions for small ensemble, opera, symphony and film, Glass finally issued a solo piano recording of his own work, Solo Piano, in 1989. Since then, much of Glass’s music has become part of the contemporary solo piano repertoire. Russian pianist and composer Anton Batagov, Taiwanese keyboardist Jenny Lin, and jazz pianist Aaron Diehl are among the artists who have embraced it and made it their own.

A musician heavily influenced by Glass and his fellow “minimalist” composers of the 1960s-70s, Batagov has composed and recorded prolifically and is seen as one of the younger generation of artists carrying on the approaches and aesthetics Glass pioneered. He has recorded two albums dedicated to Glass’s music, including 2016’s Prophecies and last year’s Philip Glass: The Complete Etudes.
Starting her musical life as a true prodigy, Lin began piano studies at age four and has given recitals at Carnegie Hall and Avery Fisher Hall. A versatile artist who has moved within the realms of the classical repertoire, contemporary music, and jazz, Lin has collaborated with Ethan Iverson, Marc Ribot, Nels Cline, and Uri Caine. She recorded an album devoted to Glass’s Etudes, Complete Etudes for Piano, for the Steinway & Sons label in 2017.
Known primarily as a major voice in jazz piano who frequently shares the stage with vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, Diehl is one of the younger generation of omnivorous artists whose scope extends beyond genres and borders. He brings a uniquely personal approach to the music of Philip Glass.

ABOUT PHILIP GLASS:

Easily one of the most prolific and influential artists of the modern age, Philip Glass rose to prominence as one of the so-called “minimalist” composers in the late 1960s along with Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and LaMonte Young. His seminal long-form composition Music in 12 Parts, revolutionary electric chamber opera Einstein on the Beach, and score to Godfrey Reggio’s groundbreaking 1983 film Koyaanisqatsi brought his singular approach to the mainstream. Glass’ current work encompasses solo piano, symphonic music, chamber music, opera, and soundtracks.
