Earthling on Fire

Re: Invocation & Ritual Dance Of The Young Pumpkin [re: Adam]  

In reply to:

I did read in the early 1990s that Glass was the most popular living composer.


"Popularity" sounds difficult to measure objectively, doesn't it? Anyhow, even if Glass is the most popular composer, I don't think he is the most popular AND renowned. I've just pulled out the 12/1999 issue of a music mag which asked a panel of 46 international musicians to name their top ten 20th-c. pieces. 7 journalists did the same. Out of the 530+ answers, Glass's name does not appear once. The only minimalist to be named was Steve Reich (once). The living composers most often cited were Boulez and Dutilleux (in that order).

In reply to:

My friends were forced to study him at University so I was suspecting he must have been extremely renoun too....but perhaps not.


That would have been University of Please Yourself, CA in Stanley J. Krammerhead III,Jr.,Occasional visiting professor of applied narcotics,'s course.

In reply to:

What would you say holds him back from more critical acceptance?


I think his work is usually reproached with being simplistic and poppish, a bit like Arvo Pärt's or Terry Riley's. The only person in the "serious" music game I've heard or read speaking favourably of Glass is conductor Marc Minkowski, who by the way is not at all a specialist of contemporary but baroque music. And in the three years I've attended classical concerts and opera performances, I don't remember any of his works being programmed in Paris, at least in its most important 6 or 7 venues.

Wear your wound with honour.
