Glass: Violin Concerto, etc., performed by Adele Anthony and Ulster Orchestra ????

Philip Glass creates a violin concerto and other works that do not seem to press the virtuosic abilities of the performer so much provide a minimalistic but not monotonous array of tones that enchant the hearer. I’m not a huge fan of minimalistic music, and would probably die at a Glass opera. This music lacks the intensity of a Wagner or Beethoven, or the cacophony of a late Schönberg. It is easy on the listener. The performance is very well done, and recording made with highest standards. This is a good buy for the budget price that one would find with most Naxos discs. It is to be commended to those who appreciate minimalistic music.
