Glass, Philip (Composer) & Bang On A Can (Performers). PHILIP GLASS: MUSIC IN FIFTHS, TWO PAGES. New York City, NY: Cantaloupe Records, 2004. Other. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. As New.

New Recording of the composer's pioneering masterworks. One of Philip Glass' finest achievements. The first and only edition. Produced in a small and limited print run as a Compact Disc. There is no ISBN. The CD is now scarce. Presents Philip Glass' "Music In Fifths" and "Two Pages" in definitive performances by Bang On A Can. Two ground-breaking works that have stood the test of time. "Arguably Minimalism's most well-known and influential composer. Before film soundtracks, operas, and universal acclaim, there were these intense, rugged, and demanding early works for keyboard. Glass' ideas here are at their most basic, using only addition and subtraction of notes in simple scales to create epic and hypnotic musical forms. Bang On A Can All-Stars re-conceive these works for their ground-breaking sound of clarinet, cello, bass, piano, marimba, and electric guitar. In the tradition of their award-winning recording of Terry Riley's 'In C' (the Number One CD of 2001 by both The New York Times and The Washington Post), the musicality, passion, and focus plus the sparkling sound quality of the recording, catapult these classic works into the 21st century" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Philip Glass and Bang On A Can collectors. This copy of the Compact Disc (CD) is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker in front by Philip Glass. It is signed directly on the cover itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the CD available online, is enclosed in its own protective plastic sleeve, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Because of its very limited number, its collectible value will not only keep but increase over time. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest composers of our time. A flawless copy.
