By special arrangement with Philip Glass and Dunvagen Music Publishers, Inc.
The Philip Glass Ensemble (PGE) comprises the principal performers of the music of Philip Glass.
In 1968, Glass founded the PGE in New York City as a laboratory for his music.
Its purpose was to develop a performance practice to meet the unprecedented technical and artistic demands of his compositions.
During the 2020–21 season, the PGE will focus on re-launching Music in Eight Parts in concert, alongside other selections of Philip Glass his Early Works. However, the choice of material is not limited to the focus on Music in Eight Parts.
Starting 2020, Philip Glass will usually not perform with the Philip Glass Ensemble.
He fully and officially endorses the PGE in the future: “the PGE represents the most authentic performance practice of my music in our time. I am looking forward to championing them as they carry it forward and bring its unique repertoire to new generations” – Philip Glass.
