Iranian Composer Honors Philip Glass in Kiev


Philip Glass In Concert In Ostrava

Iranian Composer, Morteza Shirkouhi, wrote the song “Echoes” in honor of the great American composer Philip Glass. For the “Glass Worlds” commemoration of the composers work in Kiev, pianist Nicolas Horvath performed the piece on New Year’s Eve. “Glass Worlds” is a tribute to the composer of “Einstein on the Beach” and “Songs From Liquid Days, ” and has been featured in several cities, including Paris and Tokyo, as reported by the Mehr news agency.

Philip Glass, born in 1937, is considered one of the most innovative composers of the 20th century and was declared a master of minimalism, but he often rejected the label minimalism, and said he preferred to be called a composer of “music with repetitive structures.” More recently, he has called himself a Classicist. Philip Glass was born in Maryland to Lithuanian Jewish parents. His father owned a record store and fostered his son’s interest in music.
