Glass Box

10 CDs of Philip Glass music has to a good thing, so please say "hello" to Glass Box: A Nonesuch Retrospective.

Like many collections that are limited to one label, Glass Box misses some major works, such as Akhnaten (a personal favourite of mine), but it does cover most of his long and illustrious career so it is a very good thing.

But the best part of the retrospective is that Philip Glass is doing some promotional work in the UK. So far I have heard him interviewed on Stuart Maconie's Freakzone (BBC Radio 6) and on The Today Programme (Radio 4), and I believe that he has also been on Radio 3. The BBC must like him as much as I do!
