Great Album! Especially tracks 1-4

This is a very different style of music from Philip Glass with a lot more depth than some of his previous works (at least to my ears and mind). I enjoy both works here. The Concerto for Cello and Orchestra is interesting, featuring a very familiar musical name, Julian Lloyd Webber. But my favorite work is the concert Fantasy for 2 Timpanists, featuring Evelyn Glennie. Wow, what a work of energy and excitement! If you like percussion, this is a great one! Enjoy!

Mixed Feelings

For the Philip Glass devotee this album is essential to your collection. The textures and movement of the Concerto for Cello and Orchestra merit the purchase of this work. However, as much as I enjoy Glass's music, I do not believe he plays to his strengths when emphasizing percussion instruments. Perhaps it is the recording, but I find the Concert Fantasy for 2 Timpanists and Orchestra overly bombastic. The music is almost a caricature of itself. Maybe that is why "Fantasy" is in the title. Overall, this would not be the set of pieces I recommend to a casual Glass listener.

More musical blah from the Glass factory.

Whoever thought this is a differnt style for Glass has been drinking too much of the "I'm more special than you" Koo-Aid. The Timpani concerto is different only in that it's impossible to write arpeggios for the instrument. Still Glass pulls his usual tricks of using the same chord progressions repeatedly to make sure we all know this is Glass. The only real reason to get the album is for Evelyn Glennie who never ceases to amaze.

While in elementary school she learned to lip-read and also developed a technique for detecting musical pitch and volume. Standing on the outside of the practice room Glennie would place her hands on the walls and pay attention to the vibrations...
