Work type: Concert.


Philip Glass Ensemble returns to present the UK premiere of its Retrospective programme - a kind of partial 'Greatest Hits' that revisits some of Philip Glass' most important, popular and epoch-defining works. They include the Cologne Section from CIVIL warS (1984), originally created for an unrealised Robert Wilson project for the Los Angeles Olympic Games; excerpts from the seminal Music In 12 Parts, which resonate alongside key works from the 1980s including the last act of his chamber opera The Photographer, and music written for Godfrey Reggio's cult film Koyaanisqatsi. Music in Similar Motion meantime, dizzying and determined, takes the story back to 1969.

The Qatsi Trilogy - T01574797938

In 1975, Godfrey Reggio, a man who had spent 14 years in silence and prayer as a member of a contemplative religious order and then devoted his life to community service, latched onto an idea for a film that would create an entirely new motion picture style. His idea was to grab images from real life - emotional, raw, honest images - and present them in a non-verbal, non-linear fashion, forging a kind of concert cinema. During filmmaking, Reggio invited the daring experimental composer Philip Glass to create a score for his first film KOYAANISQATSI, which in 1982 was released to critical acclaim. It sparked a continuing collaboration between the two artists. The QATSI films, KOYAANISQATSI, POWAQQATSI and NAQOYQATSI, have been seen by over 35 million people worldwide. The films, which can be enjoyed individually or as a series, will be screened at Wales Millennium Centre, accompanied live by Philip Glass and the Philip Glass Ensemble.Conductor Philip Glass.
