Hot Date: The Superb Soundtrack of Philip Glass

Philip Glass

SEPTEMBER 17 Open your ears to one of modern classical music’s great composers as the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra performs the film music of Philip Glass. Known for his contrapuntal, structurally repetitive symphonies, operatic works, string quartets and more, Glass is also a three-time Academy Award nominee for his work in motion pictures. Music from one of these lauded movies, The Hours, is a highlight of the orchestra’s program and features pianist Michael Riesman, longtime music director of the Philip Glass Ensemble. The recital also includes Glass’s Symphony no. 3 and his score to the 1931 version of Dracula. Glenn Gould Studio, 8 p.m., $45; call 416-872-4255 or visit here to purchase.
