At Le Poisson Rouge, the Philip Glass Ensemble performs Music in Twelve Parts over four sets on February 16 (4:30pm and 7:30pm) and February 17 (6pm and 9pm). Each set includes Three Parts.

Please note that Philip Glass will not be performing as part of these concerts.

Music in Twelve Parts, written by Philip Glass between 1971 and 1974, is a deliberate, encyclopedic compendium of some techniques of repetition the composer had been evolving since the mid 1960s. It holds an important place in Glass’s repertory – not only from a historical vantage point (as the longest and most ambitious concert piece for The Philip Glass Ensemble) but from a purely aesthetic standard as well, because Music in Twelve Parts is both a massive theoretical exercise and a deeply engrossing work of art.
