        Having heard all of Glass' suite, Glassworks; I enjoyed listening to the opening piece so much that I decided to buy the music. My main instrument is viola, and I am relatively self-taught at piano. However, if you can grasp the polyrhythm in the piece (straight quavers in the left hand against quaver triplets in the right hand), then the rest is quite simple. I was suprised at only seeing 2 pages of music considering the piece is around 7 minutes long - but such is the genius of Philip Glass. It is only made up of a few sections that are repeated (with a da capo x2), but the mesmerising pianistic texture combined with the way in which the tension builds makes this very enjoyable to play. I would certainly disagree with anyone that classes Glass' work as monotonous. Repetitive yes - but that is the beauty of this piece.
