Customer Reviews

Expressive and Powerful

In response to the last reviewer: Have you actually listened to this? Glass's "Songs and Poems" are much more reminiscent of Bach's Suites for Solo Cello than of his more popular works such as the soundtrack to Koyaanisqatsi or Einstein on the Beach. Glass has done an incredible thing here: he has taken the leap, however ironic, from the contemporary music that he has done before to the expressive, tradional style of the Classical-period. If you're a fan of cello music, this would be an album to add to your collection. It is expressive and powerful, dark and full of angst. It's brilliantly composed, and Wendy Sutter produces an incredibly emotional tone. Highly recommended.

Beautiful, in any time period

Philip Glass has not recently taken the time to invest himself in chamber music. On the occasion that he chooses to do so, people take notice. Even traditionally conservative critics including Justin Davidson of NY Magazine and Anne Midgette of the Washington Post have had superlative things to say about "Songs and Poems for Solo Cello." It's at moments like these, aside from commercial projects or large scale operas, that we see Glass the composer who had an incredibly intense classical formation including the Juilliard School and years of critical study with Nadia Boulanger in Paris. For a composer who does not often compose music on this scale, this rare piece in the Glass catalog and it is a masterpiece of its kind.
