About

This double-LP issue presents a generous selection of the piano works by Philip Glass, probably the most iconic figure of Minimal Music. Despite its title, this album is anything but a ‘mad rush’. Indeed, any listener looking to relax and better acquaint themselves with the music of Philip Glass will no doubt be affected by the sheer beauty of the mesmeric works that make up the release.

In Glass’ music the element of repetition creates a magical atmosphere, in which the little cells of musical motives shift constantly, seemingly by chance, like clouds in the sky.

Beginning with Metamorphosis, a piece made up of five sections that comprise beautifully subtle transformations, and ending with Mad Rush, less ‘mad’ than the energetic Metamorphosis, the release also includes musical excerpts from the film The Hours – the score for which Glass won the Best Film Music BAFTA in 2002.

Jeroen van Veen, a consummate performer and minimalist composer in his own right, has delved into the lesser-known area of Glass’s output to bring together a highly varied repertoire.
