From the Philip Glass Recording Archive Vol. 1 represents the first release by Orange Mountain Music from the extensive archive of recordings made in the last 40 years of Philip Glass' recording career. Theater Music Vol. 1 features two ravishingly beautiful works from the world of theater: the instrumental suite from Glass' 2003 chamber opera is highlighted by eastern and western instrumentation in one of Glass' most original scores. In the Summer House is music composed for the revival of the 1953 Bowles play. Both these scres bring a rare chance to hear one of the most important theater composers of our time in unknown scores.
