If you like reading books about reading books, then you MUST read THE BOOKS IN MY LIFE by Henry Miller.

The Duke Quartet recording of the first Philip Glass quartet is quite a revelation. This early work (1966) predates 1+1 and Strung Out, his earliest canonical "additive process" minimalist pieces, but is not quite the Copland/Barber/Piston soundworld of his even earlier Brass Sextet (1964), the only other pre-signature Glass to make it onto CD. It's a transitional piece that shows Glass heading toward his subsequent compositional breakthrough although it is not quite there yet. As such, it is a fascinating time capsule as well as a tantalizing glimpse of a different path Glass's work might have taken. I'm eager to read your reaction to it!

It is good to know that because I like classical piano music very much.
Keep up the good work.
