Composer Philip Glass has often resisted the label ‘minimalist’, instead preferring to call himself a composer of ‘music with repetitive structures’. And while this sonata abounds with repeated patterns, the overall structure touches late Romanticism more than a little, and so creates an emotional charge for many listeners. The piece was commissioned by architect Martin Murray to honour his wife Lucy Miller Murray on her 70th birthday. The initial movement is characterized by inventive harmonic progressions, the second by its moving andante moderato (athough nb, all movements are marked in beats per minute) and the third by the solistic parts for each instrument. American composer Philip Glass is widely known as one of the most celebrated, influential and prolific of the modern composers. His operas, among them the renowned Einstein On The Beach, are performed across the globe, and he has created work for small and large ensembles, film and experimental theatre, and founded his own performing group, The Philip Glass Ensemble.
