Transcription for piano from Orphée (2000) 29'

Music by Philip Glass.
Transcribed for piano by Paul Barnes.

CAST:
Piano

PREMIERE:
April 19, 2001 by Paul Barnes in New York City.

NOTES:
The disarming simplicity of Glass's music idiom is especially suited to communicating the unique tension that exists between the spiritual and the physical worlds. And this fascinating intercourse is the basis for Jean Cocteau's remarkable 1950 film version of Orphe'e on which Glass based his 1993 opera. I have tried in my selection of seven transcriptions, to communicate the most poignant aspects of the emotional world so brilliantly crafted by Glass in his score.
