Philip Glass est né en 1937 à Baltimore, Maryland (USA). Il étudie la flûte au Conservatoire de musique de Peabody et entre, à l'age de dix-neuf ans, dans une formation accélérée à l'Université de Chicago, où il étudie les mathématiques et la philosophie, où il découvre le sérialisme de Webern, et compose un trio pour cordes dans un style dodécaphonique. Il entre ensuite à la Juilliard School de New York, où le piano devient son instrument de prédilection, et où il a comme professeurs Vincent Persichetti (1915-1987) et William Bergsma (1921-1994). Pendant l'été 1960, il est élève de Darius Milhaud (1892-1974), et compose alors un Concerto pour violon. De 1964 à 1966, il vient à Paris étudier avec Nadia Boulanger (1887-1979), qui enseigne au Conservatoire américain de Fontainebleau. Ces années passées à Paris auront une influence considérable sur ses oeuvres, comme il le dira en 1979 : « Les compositeurs que j'ai étudiés avec Boulanger sont ceux dont je pense le plus grand bien - Bach et Mozart. » Glass découvre également de nouvelles musiques dans les concerts donnés au Domaine Musical de Pierre Boulez (né en 1925), mais il affirmera plus tard qu'elles ne lui donnaient « aucune excitation ». A la même époque, il collabore avec Ravi Shankar (né en 1920), sitariste et compositeur indien qui, de par les processus graduels et répétitifs typiques de la musique indienne, aura une grande influence sur la pensée musicale de Glass.Lire la suite ›

Certainement les deux œuvres de Philip Glass les plus ennuyeuses, sans beaucoup de richesse d'invention, mais correctement interprétées. A réserver aux fans.

HASH(0x8ab4587c) étoiles sur 5 Delightful recording of some truly creative music 2 février 2005
Par A. Drinkard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I bought this recording on a whim and began listening to it during a long, lonely drive alongside the rocky flatirons of Colorado. Symphony No. 2 very much caught me off guard. What a sparkling, playful, and beautiful work! There are times when the music does things that you would not expect it to do at all (giving it the "atonal" quality that other reviewers refer too), but upon the second listening you will likely already be smiling when you encounter the various twists of the music. (One of the twists, by the way, is a mind-stretching change in time signature and extreme syncopation in the third movement...on my first listening, I honestly thought the disc was scratched.) The symphony is ever colorful and the strings are lush and very pleasing to the ear. Given minimalism's reputation, I was particularly pleased with how melodic the symphony is. If you are at all familiar with minimalism, you'll "get it" fairly quickly. If not, this is a delightful and particularly beautiful introduction to the subgenre.

I am a glutton for the Symphony form, so my enjoyment of the Saxophone Quartet was a pleasant surprise. I've certainly never heard anything like this before, the closest thing being a jazz ensemble. The crisp and full tone of the saxophones was the first thing I noticed. Again, this is very creative music.

Whether you are a minimalist connoisseur or not, you'll find this recording remarkable for both its performance and sound. I do love sharing this album (legally sharing of course) :-) Enjoy!

HASH(0x8ab458d0) étoiles sur 5 Glass more than half full 30 juin 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

It was difficult for me not to give this CD 5 stars. It does not quite measure up to my favorite Phillip Glass compositions, but nevertheless I listen to Symphony No 2 often.
There are three works on this recording; Symphony No. 2, Interlude from Orphee, and Concerto for Saxophone Quartet and Orchestra. It is the namesake Symphony which is the jewel of this collection. It is typical of Glass' best work. A simple theme is repeated, varied, and experimented with. The result is hauntingly powerful. The theme's beauty holds the piece together.
The other pieces are not as good, but still enjoyable listening. If like I, you are a Glass fan, you will like this CD. If you are considering which Phillip Glass composition might be a good introduction, I would recommend his soundtrack to the movie "Kundun" or the "Heroes Symphony."

HASH(0x8ab45aa4) étoiles sur 5 A beautiful concerto by a great composer 3 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Philip Glass has written all of his five symphonies in the nineties, and they are beautiful symphonic masterpieces (his latest was premiered in summer 1999). His Symphony No.2 (1994) has a wonderful moving, melancholic middle movement and an upbeat finale. But I think the Saxophone Quartet Concerto(1995) is even better; its first movement sounds rather gothic (very Edgar Allen Poe), the second is very jazzy. The third is one of the most tranquil slow movements I've ever heard (a rainy night in Manhattan?). The last is very fast, light and upbeat. Phil Glass beautifully blended elements from (french? - I think there is some Satie, Ravel and Poulenc in it) classical music, jazz and rock in that piece, but its pure Glass. It's great.

Philip Glass's music will continue to divide opinion, I guess, but at his best his friendly-faced brand of minimalism, coupling relatively traditional harmonic sequences with a strong rhythmic pulse in a manner that leaves more room for invention and imagination than one might suspect, is thoroughly compelling. Indeed, I am willing to say that at his best Glass deserves to be counted as a great composer. I am also willing to say that his second symphony does indeed find him at his very best, with its hypnotic polytonal patterns and organically developing architecture, interspersed with magnificent colors.

More than much other contemporary music, Glass's music is deeply evocative and atmospheric, often bordering on the picturesque. In the second symphony the first movement (which incorporates North American native rhythmic patterns) does suggest the open-air landscapes of Copland, but with a stronger sense of movement and momentum. The second movement is dark and surprisingly emotionally intense, while the final movement is playful and celebratory but with more serious (even wistful) undertones and, again, an almost intense forward drive. Although I suppose it will not be for everyone, I found Glass's second symphony to be a deeply rewarding experience and I am willing to count it among the more important symphonic works written the last twenty years.

The concerto for saxophone quartet and orchestra is similarly successful; as with the symphony the underlying pulse is always there, but the colors and effects Glass achieves on top of it are deeply fascinating. There are even some immediately memorable themes (the third movement in particular), and Glass utilizes the coloristic range of the solo ensemble with ingenuity and imagination. In between the symphony and the concerto we get a short, compelling interlude from Orphée. Everything is immaculately performed by the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, respectively, under Dennis Russell Davies, and the sound is very good. In short, I have no hesitations about giving this disc the highest recommendations; do give it a try.

HASH(0x8ab45858) étoiles sur 5 "Glass" at his best...................... 14 septembre 2007
Par Tanis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Philip Glass's Symphony No. 2, in three substantial movements, represents his music at its most mellifluous, his second-generation brand of minimalism. Written in 1993, it uses polytonality as a basic element, to a degree taking the place of contrasts traditional in symphonic form. The first movement, longest of the three, is lush and lyrical, with melodies turning back on themselves, while the central slow movement jogs along similarly with minimalist "till-ready" rhythms. The finale is bolder and brassier, with piano bringing echoes of "Petrushka." The Interlude from Orphee is vintage Glass, while the more compact Saxophone Quartet Concerto brings the liveliest music and Spanish-American flavors in the finale varying Glass's persistent moderato writing. Excellent performances and well-balanced recording.
