Music in Twelve Parts
Date: Mon February 16, 2009 5:00pm
Music in Twelve Parts, written in 1974, was a breakthrough work for Philip Glass, a giant summing-up of his style and musical explorations to that point. The Philip Glass Ensemble, with the composer on keyboards, comes to San Francisco for the first live West Coast performance of this four-hour landmark in late-20th century music. The performance will have intermissions and a one-hour break for dinner.
