Five exceptional pianists—including the composer himself—kick off season five with Philip Glass' complete piano études, some of his "best, most harmonically inventive music" (New York Times). These 20 works, created to explore a variety of tempi, textures, and techniques, have been hailed for their intimacy and complexity. Glass wrote the first six études as a 50th birthday gift for Dennis Russell Davies in 1994 and finished the 20th in time for the celebration of his own 75th birthday.


PRE-CONCERT TALK: At 6:30 pm, Stanford Live's new executive director Chris Lorway joins Glass for a conversation about the composer's legendary, genre-crossing career.
