Programme Note
Philip Glass The Canyon (1988)
'The Canyon' is the second piece of a series of symphonically conceived "portraits of nature" (preceded by 'The Light' and followed by 'Itaipu'). The composition does not refer to a particular canyon; it is based on an idealized canyon of the imagination.
