Format: Audio CD
Foday Musa Suso, esteemed African composer, had a great role in co-composing this music. What he & Glass did was literally work on each line of music together, writing a note or a few notes before the other had his turn at it. The result is something they were both very pleased with & which neither could have composed on his own. The work is brimming with Glass's repeated figures, but it's not music you might expect from him. Exotic, dry, often ethereal, it'll coat your dreams at night with a fine white sand.

Well, I simply love Philip Glass' music and I think 'The Screens' is one of the most beautiful pieces he ever composed. It was composed as incidental music for a Jean Genet play and has french feel to it (the style is quite similar to the style of his String Quartet No.5, La Belle et la Bete and the Saxophone Quartet Concerto) - and it's very lyrical. Apart from that I liked the contrast between Suso's and Glass' music a lot. The 'France' pieces and 'Night on the Balcony' are especially ravishing beautiful.

I am so glad that I have found this CD again. It is one of the most beautiful collaborations Glass has ever composed. The music floats with amazing richness and the images it conjures are deep and powerful. Truly touching.
