Keeping "Solo Piano," returning "The Piano Collection"
April 10, 2014
I saw no listing of contents of the two Philip Glass piano books I found here, saw each on the other's "customers also bought" list, and took a chance. I'm keeping only "Solo Piano."
This book consists entirely of pieces written or, in one case, adapted for piano by Glass himself as far as I can tell: the five-part "Metamorphosis," "Mad Rush" (modified from an organ work, "Fourth Series Part 4"), and "Wichita Vortex Sutra," part of "Hydrogen Jukebox."
I'm returning "The Piano Collection" because its contents are the same "Metamorphosis," two shorter works for piano, and piano arrangements by other men of some of Glass's ensemble works - not what I'm interested in playing. I list the full contents in my review of that collection.
It would help if Amazon provided the same level of detail for music scores that they do for recorded music.
