Philip Glass - Itaipu/Canyon [2LP]
Itaipu, written by American composer Philip Glass, were commissioned by the Atlanta
Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. Along with The Light (1987), they marked Glass's
continuation of a symphonic trilogy of ''portraits of nature'' as he had recently turned to
making orchestral music. The composition pays a beautiful homage to the Itaipu Dam,
which is the world's largest hydroelectric dam built on the Parana River between Paraguay
and Brazil. The text was written in Guarani, and translated by Daniela Thomas. The piece
was first performed in 1989. This LP also includes The Canyon on the D-side, which was
first performed in 1988 and commissioned by the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra.
Itaipu and The Canyon are available on vinyl for the first time. It comes a in deluxe
heavyweight sleeve with gloss laminate, and includes an insert with linernotes as well as
the Philip Glass catalogue with info on the MOV Philip Glass series.

We try to be as accurate as possible, but we use a service to get images for the vinyl records we sell. Sometimes, this leads to the image showing a special colored vinyl edition of a record when we only have the standard black vinyl version.
