About

Voices for Organ & Didgeridoo was commissioned by the City of Melbourne to re-launch the Melbourne Town Organ in 2001. This piece was the first collaboration between Glass and didgeridoo player Mark Atkins. The two would later work together on Orion. This world premiere recording of the piece is performed and produced by Michael Riesman, organist and music director of the Philip Glass Ensemble.

The second half of the album is dedicated to a newly published edition of Glass works arranged for organ by Riesman, containing pieces from Powaqqatsi, Glassworks and Naqoyqatsi.

Riesman performs on a privately owned instrument in New York State.
