Description: Glass' sonata is, as one would expect, tonal, with rippling, pulsating accompaniments underpinning the kind of extended melodic writing that has come to characterize his more recent music - still based on rhythm and chromatic harmonic progressions as structural elements, but reasserting the role of melody as an important expressive device. In three movements; the first elegant and purposeful, the finale, rich textured with much double-stopping and mounting passion as it progresses very much derived from romantic models, with the slow movement touching in its songlike simplicity. Maria Bachmann (violin), Jon Klibonoff (piano).
