If a singular piece of late 20th century music can be identified as a turning point that profoundly changed music history forever after, _Music in Twelve Parts is just that work. A monumental four-hour compendium of years of Glass’ experimentation and success in the late 60s and early 70s at forging a brilliant new style, it has been compared to Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier_ for its scope and ambitious redefinition of form and sound.
History may well judge Music in Twelve Parts as Philip Glass’ most important work and no recording can match the live experience of its visceral power. Never before performed live on the West Coast, the work is recreated by the original 1974 cast in two sessions with a dinner break in between.
