This recording by **Bojan Gorišek** finds the Slovenian pianist exploring the piano etudes by the contemporary American composer **Philip Glass.** Pieces like *’Satyagrahe’, ‘Koyaanisqatsi’* and the Violin Concerto found **Glass** writing on an orchestral scale; he also wrote for more traditional chamber ensembles.
The twenty piano etudes heard in this recording were begun in 1993, commissioned by the pianist *Dennis Russell Davies.* In these pieces, **Glass** departs from the “minimalist” style, incorporating a high degree of emotional expressiveness. **Gorišek** is especially well-regarded for his interpretations of *Erik Satie’s* piano works and **Gorišek** concentrates on **Glass’** 20th and 21st-century compositions.
