Philip Glass: The EtudesUCLA Royce Hall (340 Royce Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90095) Map it $30
Philip Glass is incontestably one of the most influential American composers of the late-20th century -- and one of the most acclaimed international composers of his time. After conceiving The Etudes as a set of twenty works for solo piano, Glass spent twenty years completing the studies. It was in celebration of his 75th birthday that the final four etudes were completed. As a whole, The Etudes stands as a moving and introspective portrait of the composer over the course of two decades. Joined by two remarkable pianists, Maki Namekawa and Sally Whitwell, Glass serenades listeners with an immersive, personal soundscape that elicits goosebumps in its solemn and sophisticated simplicity.
