19 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

In this playlist, Philip Glass reveals the works that have nourished his endlessly hungry imagination. While Bach shaped Glass's architectural conception of music, Ravi Shankar helped him unlock the rhythmic possibilities of composition. Whether through the modern jazz innovations of the ‘60s or the visceral rock performances of the ‘70s, Glass has always channeled into his works the mighty musical currents of New York City. His wide-ranging favorites reveal an undiminished taste for all things offbeat and extraordinary.
