On the second day of the festival, September 20th at 19.00, Philip Glass will perform, alongside Tim Fain – violin and Matt Haimovitz – cello, "An Evening of Chamber Music" at the Philharmonic in Szczecin.
Philip Glass was born in 1937 in Maryland, USA. A mathematician and philosopher by education, a composer by choice. He is an icon of contemporary music, representative of the minimalist trend. This American composer is for mass culture as Steven Spielberg is for cinema, or Mario Testino for fashion photography. Philip Glass proves that an extremely personal and individual approach to composition can impress both musicologists and critics who adore the eighth philosophical bottom in the artist's work, as well as the average man – a corporate worker, a police officer, a clerk ... Glass's music is for those who have an ear and use it to "pick up sounds", allowing them to rest and put themselves in a good mood. Such is Philip Glass, three times Oscar nominee (for the soundtracks to the films: "Kundun", "Truman Show", "Hours"), the Golden Globe winner (for the soundtrack to the "Truman Show") and BAFTA award holder for "Hours ".
