Weekend of January 29, 2011

Music and Conversation with Philip Glass

This weekend, we'll feature a two-part special event: music and conversation with composer Philip Glass. Glass joined PT host Fred Child for a live event in New York City. He talked about composers who've inspired him, his own experience of writing music, even his early days as a New York cabbie. The Glass Chamber Players, Trio Solisti, and violinist Maria Bachmann perform music by Glass and Maurice Ravel.
