Recorded at Baryshnikov Arts Center, New York, December 2009

This unusual pairing of works not only features Philip Glass' handpicked Glass Chamber Players but was also, according to the booklet notes (in English only), programmed at Glass' own instigation. The surprise comes from the fact that, as annotator Richard Guerin points out, Schoenberg's followers became increasingly dismissive of music with a tonal center and, moreover, because Glass himself in the past has been equally withering in describing his high-modernist musical education. The explanation given is straightforward: Glass not only studied Schoenberg in school, but heard him as a youth in Baltimore when his father, who sold 78 rpm records as a sideline, brought home the ones that didn't sell and put them on the record player. This was thus, in Guerin's words, a "return of sorts for Glass to the music of his youth." The story is intriguing, and it may come as a surprise to those on the Schoenberg side of the divide that the Glass Chamber Players deliver a smooth performance of the sextet Verklarte Nacht, Op. 4; what it may lack in sheer guts it more than makes up for with rich textures and sustained momentum. Likewise, Glass lovers may be surprised by how well the Symphony No. 3 adapts to the chamber music medium, one for which Glass is hardly known. The arrangement by producer Michael Riesman produces a novel, crisp experience of Glass' minimalist textures. Does this recording reconcile what can, in recognition of the late Milton Babbitt, be called maximalist music with Glass' minimalism? Not really, but maybe it's a start, and if you're intrigued by either work you'll find it well performed here.
