Sally Whitwell (piano)


Philip Glass is that rarest of contemporary ‘classical’ composers – a musician who has revolutionised the way art music is composed and found a massive audience in doing so. As much a pop and cult phenomenon as he is a descendant of Beethoven, Glass’ music has been used in classic films like Koyanisqaatsi and The Hours. But it’s in his music for solo piano that the essence of his art is revealed.

In this ground-breaking album from Australian pianist Sally Whitwell – the first of its kind ever to be recorded in Australia, all of Glass’ finest solo piano music is represented. The fabulous Australian Stuart & Sons piano has been deployed for this recording, its crystalline tones ideally suited to Glass’ hypnotically beautiful music.
