Programme Note
Philip Glass Façades (1981)
The piece was originally written as part of the score for Godfrey Reggio’s film Koyannisqatsi. Although I quite liked the way it turned out, it was not used for the film and ended up on my 1982 album for CBS, Glassworks – It also has become a staple of the live performances of the Philip Glass Ensemble and was included in Glasspieces, the production put on at the New York City Ballet in the spring of 1990, choreographed by Jerome Robbins. Ransome Wilson has recorded this work on the Angel Label.
