before blog — after glass

I got persuaded to go and see Philip Glass at The Royal Festival Hall last night. Mmmmm. Still not sure. I think my problem is that I think he found his own compositional technique ages ago, and since then has hardly moved on, reusing elements that are far past their sell by date. I enjoyed some of the evening, but I feel once you’ve come to terms with one of his compositions, there’s hardly any challenge left in the others.
