This volume focuses on love, one of Philip Glass' most glorious themes. The timeless melancholy of his BAFTA award-winning music for The Hours forms an organic suite driven by the film's three powerful characters, here complete with three unpublished movements. The breathtakingly energetic Modern Love Waltz expands the limits of minimalism by combining Glass' style with Viennese dance tradition, while his transcription of Notes on a Scandal is a recording premiere. Steve Reich described the iconic Music in Fifths as being 'like a freight train'.
