Notes and Editorial Reviews

In 1998, percussionist Jonathan Haas commissioned Philip Glass to compose a concerto. The Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpani has turned out to be one of Glass’s most frequently performed concert works. Haas worked closely with Josh Quillen and NYU Steel to create the arrangements and recording of Philip Glass’ piano Etudes on steel drums. The result is a fantastic re-imagining of Glass’ music, giving new light to the color and structure of this very popular repertoire.
