On this new recording from Orange Mountain Music, pianist Paul Barnes (OMM0008, OMM0036, OMM0107) and renowned string quartet Brooklyn Rider (OMM0074, OMM0119) collaborate on a new album of music by Philip Glass including two world premiere recordings of major works.

The album begins with Philip Glassís 2018 Piano Quintet 'Annunciation' based on the 'Hymn of the Annunciation' from the Greek Orthodox tradition. The other major work receiving a premiere recording is Glassís 2018 String Quartet no.8. The album is rounded out with shorter pieces Pendulum (2010) for violin and piano and Glassís 2017 Quartet Satz, an homage to Schubertís Quartettsatz.

The album closes with an a cappella version of the Greek Annunciation theme sung by Paul Barnes.
