About

Pianist and arranger Anton Batagov is one of the most influential Russian musicians of our time. As a performer Batagov introduced the music of John Cage, Morton Feldman, Steve Reich, and Philip Glass to Russian audiences. On this his debut recording with Glassís record label Orange Mountain Music, Batagov offers a recital of Glassís music which holds a personal importance for him, music which has never been heard on solo piano. Three of the four tracks offered on Batagovís programme are from Glassís epic opera Einstein on the Beach - Trial, Night Train, and Knee Play 5. These pieces capture the sound of a particularly expansive moment in Glassís career as he transitioned from hardcore Minimalism to a more expressive medium. That artistic pivot is captured in Batagovís mystical reading of Prophecies from Koyaanisqatsi.
