This program reverses time, revealing the metamorphosis in Glassís work from his 1980s film and theatre transcriptions, through The Olympian composed for the Los Angeles Olympiad, to rarities such as the dreamlike Coda. The Trilogy Sonata highlights Glassís renowned operas, from the celebratory Akhnaten Dance to the stately Satyagraha and landmark Einstein on the Beach.

The dazzling pulse-patterns of Two Pages make it a milestone of minimalism, while the Sonatina No.2 is a pre-minimalist work composed under the influence of Darius Milhaud.

Recognized as a leading interpreter of Lisztís music, Nicolas Horvath has in recent years become one of the most sought after pianists of his generation. Holder of a number of awards, including First Prize of the Scriabin and the Luigi Nono International Competitions, he frequently organises events and concerts of unusual length, sometimes over twelve hours, such as Philip Glassí complete piano music or Erik Satieís Vexations, and composers from a number of countries have written for him. Nicolas Horvath is a Steinway artist.
