This album brings together two artists with enormous followings: Valentina Lisitsa, with her dazzling artistry and hundreds of thousands of followers on YouTube; and Philip Glass, with his hugely popular minimalist piano music. A generous selection of Philip Glass's most successful and best-loved pieces for solo piano, brought together on one 150min release (2 CD physical) - including tracks from the BAFTA-winning and Academy Award nominated film "The Hours" This is Glass at his best - using the building blocks of minimalism to achieve a huge, inventive soundscape of musical richness and contrasts. Richly harmonic, this is a deeply evocative listening experience showcasing the revelatory performances of YouTube sensation, pianist Valentina Lisitsa; a wonderful artist with exceptional musicality and a stunning technique.
