While I don't like everything every composer Backbone - Gojira - From Mars To Sirius like creates, I love these pieces.
Rhythmic for dancing even if only in your mind. One person found this helpful. This collection gives a narrow but varied sample of Glass's pieces used by noted choreographers. The music is very danceable even for the non-professional and is highly recommended for teachers who want to broaden their dance students' sensibilities beyond stale over-orchestrated bits of "Nutcracker" or bubble gum pop music adored by "dance teams".
Format: Audio CD. I have only just recently started exploring the major minimalist composers and found this compilation by Philip Glass to be very interesting and perhaps a little bit more accessible in contrast with early compositions by Terry Riley.
In general, the music on this compilation features ostinatos mixed with arpeggios and like most minimalism, the pieces are deeply meditative. Glasspieces was originally performed in ; the nine movement In the Upper Room suite premiered in ; and both accompanied a ballet performance.
Neither of the pieces on this compilation are presented in their original complete form. Specifically, only five of the nine movements selected by Glass himself originally included on In the Upper Room are presented on Dancepieces, while only movements 4 and 5 were taken from the original six movement Glassworks Μη Βγαίνεις Στο Χορό - Ρόζα Εσκενάζη* - Αφιέρωμα Dance IX - Philip Glass - DancePieces represents a single movement taken from the Akhnaten suite Admittedly, the abbreviated version of In the Upper Room does not Dance IX - Philip Glass - DancePieces very well.
Then again, I really did not mind too much because the music is fascinating. Of the two pieces my favorite is the more subdued and gloomy In the Upper Room, which emphasizes "classical" instrumentation.
In large part, the music on this album is very brooding, reflective, and dominated by woodwind, brass and string instruments. There are however, some extremely "rhythmically charged" moments where just percussion and synthesizers are used, e. The technique of the musicians on Glasspiece No. Melodies are also sprinkled throughout and add a lot to the texture of each piece.
Total running time of the CD is 45'45" with In the Upper Room clocking in at approximately 23'25" and Glasspieces at 22'18". There are a number of musicians on both pieces and In the Upper Room includes conductor Michael Reisman on piano and synthesizers it sounds like an Oberheim polyphonic and possibly a Yamaha CS80 polyphonic.
Fortunately, the synthesizer tone colors are very warm and do not sound too synthetic in a s way. In addition to the keyboardist, there are a number of string, brass, and woodwind players. Synthesizer use is much heavier on Glasspieces, although the second Glasspiece movement is dominated by strings and woodwinds and is very haunting my personal favorite.
Although nearly all instrumental music, the addition of voice Dora Ohrenstein on both pieces was a very nice touch.
All in all I found this compilation to be a great introduction to the works of minimalist composer Philip Glass. Although I had objections to the "butchered" version of In the Upper Room it really was not all that bad - in fact I am inspired to seek out the original.
This is a collection of works from the early-mid 80s, for ballet performance. However, two of these pieces were previously released on the "Glassworks" collection and as such fit better in their original context.
And the cycle "In the Upper Room" is here not presented en toto However, this is the only place you can find the ensemble version of the 'Funeral' from "Akhenaten", which was a show-stopper from Glass's ensemble concerts of the mids.
So, while this is a plus, the inclusion of the 'recycled' "Glassworks" tracks is annoying, and the chop-up of the "In the Upper Room" cycle should be considered criminal, and someone at CBS needs their head examined for continuing the vinyl sequencing present here.
Dancepieces Heard music from In the Upper Room performed by Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle which was fantastic, but the music on this record does not come up to the quality of the ballet performance. Wonder where they got their recording but no other recording is listed anywhere. Too bad. See all 7 customer reviews. Write a customer review. There's a problem loading this menu right now.
