Philip Glass in Conversation with Pico Iyer
“Few composers of our time have dismantled the barriers between the music of the people and the music of the elite more consistently and creatively than Philip Glass.” The Guardian (U.K.)
Promethean composer Philip Glass has had an unprecedented impact upon the musical and intellectual life of his times through an extraordinary body of work that has become part of our cultural soundtrack. Glass is also a born storyteller and an acutely insightful chronicler of life and creativity, whether reflecting upon his time as a taxi driver in gritty 1970s New York, making eloquent observations on Buddhism in the West or examining music’s relationship to spiritual yearning and social justice. This special evening with Philip Glass and Pico Iyer, created for this series only, brings together two unique and commanding cross-cultural interpreters for an intimate conversation about life, creativity and the global soul.
