Is it classic?
Is it pop?
No it's Glass.

So what?

I don't know.
It sounds good.
It is smart.
It makes you feel
as a part
of
classic music
listeners ' world.

Ok but that's
only an...intellectual pop.

Truth hurts!
For
that...masses
likes lies.
(sweet ones please!)

On the other way,
classic composers
sometimes
likes
complexity
perplexity
and virtuosity
over any limit.
(There are
no limits...

Ok ,this is a good reason
to put some ...).

Thanks for
your patience.

I have been in this song’s thrall for decades now, ever since I first heard it in the 80s. This year I decided it was not too late to try to fulfill a lifelong dream of learning to play piano. After six months of practice I felt ready to try to learn a real, full song, and chose this one. It will take some time, but I am doing it. The first hurdle was the polyrhythmic structure (eighth notes on the left hand, triplets on the right, simultaneously), which is SO much harder than it sounds like. But I am doing it. Soon I will be able to play this song smoothly. Now I feel like I’ve grown intimate with someone, for the whole of my life up to now, I only knew from afar. This piece will always mean a lot to me.

I love your comment. Next week, in a local church at a charity fundraiser concert, I’m going to perform Glass’ Etude Number Two. ‘The Piano Collection’ arrived today and I’ve just started playing ‘Opening’ from Glassworks. I’ve been listening to various performances (Vikingur Olafsson is fabulous: how he gently varies dynamics and accents with the repeats is wonderful), and trying to get the LH and RH synchronised is going to be a challenge and will require patience and persistence. But, like you, I want to do this and there’s a joy to be found in the journey… 🙏

@Paul Gordon Collier It's SO difficult to play for someone new like me, though! :) Practiced it for many months and still can't really hit the timing good enough for a real performance.

Also love that 2-3 split. I wrote a couple of songs (not good songs) mimicking that pattern.

ME TOO! On the decades enthralling......I wrote a fair share of derivative veersions of his work in most of the whole decade of the 90s. Discovered Glass in 87. I think it was Hymn to the Sun from Akhenaten.
