Philip Glass – “Island” from Glassworks (1982 Sony Classical)

I’ve waxed effusive about Philip Glass in the past. I think this time I’ll let Wikipedia do the heavy lifting for me:

Glassworks is a chamber music work of six movements by Philip Glass. It is regarded as a characteristically Glass-like work.

Also this quote from the man himself:

Glassworks was intended to introduce my music to a more general audience than had been familiar with it up to then.

Indeed.

I’d write more, but listening to this song reminds me that I have a noir murder to solve. Something to do with clarinets.
