About

This new release from Orange Mountain Music presents Philip Glass's first ever concert in what the composer considers his "debut". The concert took place on May 19th, 1968 at the Film Makers Cinematheque at 80 Wooster Street in Soho, New York City. The performance was the first "all-Glass" concert ever and featured solo works and duets with visual elements.

This recording captures two of the solo works from the programme, including Glass performing How Now for solo organ. Strung Out for solo amplified violin was performed by the legendary Dorothy Pixley-Rothchild for whom Glass had previously written a violin concerto, in 1960.
