Happy Birthday, Philip Glass!

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

The composer Philip Glass turns 75 today, so we thought we'd share some of our recent interviews with him. He was last on the show in November to talk about his opera, "Satyagraha," which was playing at the Metropolitan Opera.

Mr. Glass was also on the show in December 2008 to discuss "The Glass Box," a box set retrospective of his work.

He's on Soundcheck today to talk about his Symphony No. 9. Check out WQXR's blog The Operavore's "Choose Your Own Operatic Philip Glass Adventure."

Where is my comment? Do you want me to take it outside with a commentary?

Well, this is a free country, and, if I understand it correctly, I have the right NOT to celebrate his birthday even though I feel pressured to celebrate any scoundrel in sight. I am a Pascallian agnostic and I, unlike the NPR crowd, think that ethics (look up the word) matter. One interview with Glass was enough to despise his and his crowd. I hope "they" will keep the hell warm.
