“A full-body immersion into the early compositional world of Philip Glass… To hear a composer lay out his palette in such richly evocative detail is a rare and rewarding delight.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
One of the most revolutionary works of composer Philip Glass
’ oeuvre comes to Los Angeles for the first
time. Music in Twelve Parts
, an epic performance work composed by Glass for his acclaimed ensemble
between 1971-1974, is simultaneously a massive theoretical exercise and a deeply engrossing work of art.
The score is the culmination of Glass’s explorations and theories on repetition and is widely considered to
be both a masterpiece of minimalism and a seminal work of 20th-century music.
Music in Twelve Parts is a not-to-be-missed evening for Glass fans and new-music enthusiasts.
The performance is comprised of four approximately 50-minute segments plus two short intermissions and an hour-long dinner break, with an on-site meal option available for advance purchase.
fundamental L.A. has two different meal options available for advance purchase. Orders must be placed by Wed, Apr 30, and meals will be ready for pick-up at Royce Hall during the dinner break.
