Philip Glass (born January 31, 1937) is an American composer. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential musicians of the late 20th century. Glass's work has been described as minimal music, having similar qualities to other "minimalist" composers such as La Monte Young, Steve Reich, and Terry Riley. Glass describes himself as a composer of "music with repetitive structures", which he has helped evolve stylistically.
Glass founded the Philip Glass Ensemble, with which he still performs on keyboards. Read more on Last.fm

Coming soon (August 28) via Orange Mountain Music and Trinity Church Wall Street - Symphony No. 5: Requiem, Bardo, Nirmanakaya, Philip Glass
On the 20th anniversary of the premiere of Philip Glass’s magnum symphonic opus Symphony No. 5: Requiem, Bardo, Nirmanakaya, a new recording featuring Trinity ensembles is being released by Orange Mountain Music.
Written to mark the turn of the millennium, Symphony No. 5 manifests Gustav Mahler’s opinion that “The symphony must be like the world. It must embrace everything.” Glass draws from diverse spiritual wellsprings—including the Bible, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, the Koran, Hindu scriptures, and West African traditions—to create an epic narrative.
This new release includes the complete 100-minute Symphony No. 5 in studio-produced audio on two CDs and a live concert DVD of the symphony performed at Trinity Church, attended by Philip Glass. Presales: smarturl.it/rho1kf #NewMusic
