Philip Glass: Echorus

Philip Glass: Echorus

About this recording

Wishing to "evoke feelings of serenity and peace", Glass rearranged his second piano Etude for two violins and string orchestra, and dedicated the new piece to Yehudi Menuhin and Edna Mitchell. This recording features Daniel Hope, a pupil of Menuhin, who along with Chié Peters gives a dreamy performance. Echorus is characteristic of Glass's minimalist sound, and its form and instrumentation contrast with the symphonic music he was composing during the same period.
