This volume focuses on love, one of Philip Glassís most glorious themes. The timeless melancholy of his BAFTA award-winning music for The Hours forms an organic suite driven by the filmís three powerful characters, here complete with unpublished tracks. The breathtakingly energetic Modern Love Waltz expands the limits of minimalism by combining Glassís style with Viennese dance tradition, while his transcription of Notes on a Scandal is a recording premiŤre. Steve Reich described the iconic Music in Fifths as being ďlike a freight trainĒ.

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 organizes events and concerts of unusual length, sometimes over twelve hours, such as Philip Glassís complete piano music or Erik Satieís Vexations, and composers from a number of countries have written for him. Nicolas Horvath is a Steinway artist.
