About

This album brings together two artists with enormous followings: Valentina Lisitsa, with her dazzling artistry and hundreds of thousands of followers on YouTube, and Philip Glass, with his hugely popular minimalist piano music.

A generous selection of Philip Glass’s most successful and best-loved pieces for solo piano, brought together on one 150 minute (2CD) release including tracks from the BAFTA-winning and Academy Award nominated film 'The Hours'.”

Here is Glass at his best – using the building blocks of minimalism to achieve a huge, inventive soundscape of musical richness and contrasts. His music is richly harmonic, and this album is a deeply evocative listening experience.

These are revelatory performances from YouTube sensation, pianist Valentina Lisitsa - a wonderful artist with exceptional musicality and a stunning technique.
