Glass, P: A Brief History of Time

Glass, P: A Brief History of Time

original score from an Errol Morris film based on Stephen Hawking’s book


Orange Mountain Music presents the premiere recording of Philip Glass’s 1991 to Errol Morris’s film about the life and work of Stephen Hawking “A Brief History of Time.” This film marked the second of three famous collaborations between composer Glass and director Morris: The first was “A Thin Blue Line” (OMM0007) and the third was “The Fog of War” (OMM0010) which won the Academy Award for best documentary. This 56-minute score for orchestra captures the ethos of Hawking’s journeys into the furthest realms of scientific thought and Morris’s probing cinematic style.

Glass, P: Aguas da Amazonia

Glass, P: Aguas da Amazonia


Orange Mountain Music is proud to release the new album Aguas da Amazonia in a new orchestral version. In the 1990s Philip Glass composed a ballet for the Brazilian Grupo Corpo titled “Seven or Eight Pieces for a Ballet.” That music was picked up by the famous percussion group UAKTI and later recorded for the album Aguas da Amazonia. Aguas da Amazonia became the launching point and inspiration for arranger Charles Coleman who worked with conductor Kristjan Jarvi on adapting Glass’ music for large symphony orchestra. This new recording captures Coleman's orchestration in all its majesty showcasing the inherent symphonic possibilities.The performance showcases the MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra under Kristjan Jarvi as well as the dynamic Absolute Ensemble.

“Coleman has preserved Glass’s neat lines and distinctive melodies, while emphasising the characterful sound of the symphony orchestra…it’s a shock for listeners familiar with Glass’s pared back, clean textures, and won’t appeal to die-hard fans, but Coleman’s version plays to the strength of its intended ensembles” BBC Music Magazine, September 2017 ***

Glass, P: Cello Concerto No. 2 'Naqoyqatsi'

Glass, P: Cello Concerto No. 2 'Naqoyqatsi'


In 2001, Glass composed the music for a film called “Naqoyqatsi: Life as War” that was the third film in a trilogy by director Godfrey Reggio that features only images and music. When the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra invited Glass to be a Creative Director of its Boundless Series during the 2011-12 season, Glass thought of his cello-concerto-for-film and its possible life-after-film. The CSO commissioned Cello Concerto No.2 “Naqoyqatsi” and gave the composer the opportunity to have it reborn as a proper concerto.

The resulting recording is drawn from the live performances and is a dynamic seven-movement work, conducted here by long-time Glass champion Dennis Russell Davies with soloist and modern-master Matt Haimovitz.

“Haimovitz's tone and shaping of phrases achieve a fine balance between the expression of emotion and sentiment on one hand and robust assertion in the face of the inexorable progress of the orchestra. Dennis Russell Davies controls both delicate episodes and powerhouse passages with his customary skill.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013 *****

“Replete with images of war, death, conflict and pain, Naqoyqatsi is arguably the darkest and most disturbing depiction of 'life out of balance'...the Cello Concerto No. 2 ranks as one of the compoer's most impressive exercises in the medium.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2013

Glass, P: Concerto for Cello and Orchestra


Wendy Sutter (cello)

Orchestra of the Americas, Dante Anzolini

Philip Glass wrote this work in 2001, but missed the world premiere performed by Julian Llloyd Webber in Beijing. Although an Orange Mountain Recording was made of the work, Glass did not hear it performed live in the concert hall until 2007 when Wendy Sutter gave the US premiere in California. She has performed the work extensively and on tour with the Orchestra of the Americas, who accompany her on this recording.

“Sutter imparts both sustained lyricism and a visceral presence throughout.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2011

Glass, P: Dracula

Glass, P: Dracula


Michael Riesman (solo piano)

New virtuosic version for piano of Philip Glass’s haunting score for ‘Dracula’, the original 1931 film starring Béla Lugosi as the world’s best-known vampire, arranged and performed by Michael Riesman. To follow his successful piano arrangement of ‘The Hours’, Riesman chose Glass’s music for the horror classic because of “its seductive moods of tempestuous fury and eerie mystery, throbbing tension and quiet lyricism”.

Glass, P: Dracula

Glass, P: Dracula


Orange Mountain is pleased to announce for the reissued CD album of Philip Glass's 1998 score to the 1931 film DRACULA starring Bela Lugosi. For his new score, Philip Glass tapped the all-star Kronos Quartet and wrote specifically for them.

In the late-1990s Universal Pictures approached composer Philip Glass to compose a new score for one of its classic monster movies. Glass chose to compose a score for Tod Browning's 1931 Dracula because it never had an original score of its own. He composed the work for string quartet to evoke an ancient sound and now almost 20 years later Glass and Kronos continue to perform the music live to film around the world.

In the end Glass's music gave the film new life, perhaps adding something that had been missing before there was music: structure and pacing and above all a new sense of mystery and soul.
