Notes and Editorial Reviews

At 100 minutes long, Glass's Fifth Symphony is his magnum symphonic opus. The piece reflects a journey of human experiences through texts of the world's various 'Wisdom Traditions' (religions). Because of it's size, the piece is rarely performed. Conductor Julian Wachner played the symphony at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC in November 2016 and immediately resolved to make a new recording with the full resources of Trinity Wall Street in New York including NOVUS NY, Trinity Choir, Trinity Children's Choir, Downtown Voices and soloists Heather Buck, Katherine Pracht, Vale Rideout, Stephen Salters, and David Cushing. A bonus DVD features a concert video of the performance at Trinity Church in New York City, and an extended interview with Read more Julian Wachner and Philip Glass. Read less
