16 Songs, 1 Hour 8 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

A major milestone in Philip Glass’s compositional output. Matt Haimovitz plays Glass’s brand-new Partita No 2, alongside its predecessor, "Songs and Poems," which surprised many people with its depth and ambition. It’s not hard to hear that Glass has studied Bach’s solo cello suites in depth, and he demands a similar range from the instrument. This is music of real substance, and couched in a very different style to the minimalist Glass we’ve come to know. Haimovitz is utterly inside this music and brings passion, technique, and personality.
