Release Date: 11/17/2017
Label: Steinway & Sons Catalog #: 30070
Composer:  Philip Glass Performer:  Jenny Lin

One of the most influential composers of our time, Philip Glass has created an opus in the tradition of Frédéric Chopin. The Etudes, conceived to develop his own keyboard skills, evolved into a career achievement reflecting the breadth of his compositional style.

R E V I E W S:

"Jenny Lin has been close to Glass at various points in the works' development, but this does not mean that she is obligated to follow his lead in terms of interpretation. Indeed, it's the best possible news for his music that any prescriptions he may have laid down are now being discarded in favor of variety.

-- AllMusic Guide

"What a delightful 2 disc CD set this is, and a propitious time to celebrate Philip Glassís 80th Anniversary year...[Lin's] performance here is energetic and polished. Some people can only take Glass in small doses, but..I find itís a joy to immerse myself in the Glass universe of these fresh performances of the Etudes...Highly Recommended."
