Label: Orange Mountain Music
Description: Written as a ballet commission for the Nederlands Dans Theater in 2010, the half-hour long double concerto is in three parts, each preceded by a duet for the soloists who also close the work with a fourth duet. This recording of the 2000 Tirol Concerto, Glass' first work in which he used original folk music, although his (evolving) brand of minimalism is just as recognizable as ever, was first issued in 2004 (05F069).
