Philip Glass Residency: Music in Twelve Parts
18:00 - 23:00
Philip Glass and his ensemble will perform Music in Twelve Parts one of Glass’s landmark pieces composed by Glass for the Philip Glass Ensemble between 1971–74. It is one of the most original and revolutionary works of Glass’s oeuvre. Both a massive theoretical exercise and a deeply engrossing work of art, the score is the culmination of Glass’ explorations and theories on repetition. It is widely considered to be a masterpiece of minimalism and a seminal work of 20th century music.
Music in Twelve Parts runs a total of five hours with two short intermissions and an hour-long dinner break.
National Concert Hall, Dublin, Ireland
