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.
