I suppose it's good to know that not everyone loves Philip Glass:
But I have to say that I don't think there's a composer in the history of music who has made such a reputation, or so much money, from so pitifully small a talent.
I don't have this opinion myself but am willing to share it here, for what it's worth. And I'll likely continue to listen to Einstein on the Beach a lot in the lead-up to the Berkeley shows this fall.
I heard his Ninth Symphony at the LA Philharmonic last month and mostly liked it. But the early, minimal stuff is the most captivating.
I do wonder how many people other than myself like the music of both Philip Glass and Milton Babbitt. (I was going to say Elliott Carter but don't listen much to it anymore, for some reason).
