Solo Piano by Philip Glass
This recording features remarkable unaccompanied piano unlike the work of any other composer to date. Glass wrote the first five arrangements as an ode to Kafka's The Metamorphosis. The other two tracks are Mad Rush and Wichita Sutra Vortex the first of which was written in 1981 for the Dalai Lama's first public address in New York City the latter being a collaboration with the poet Allen Ginsberg, a long time friend of Glass.
