A fabulous new box set comprising the complete Glass works from the Naxos catalogue, all of them immensely successful in their own right.

\Her [Marin Alsop's] Glass is assured, almost relaxed when the score permits, occasionally laconic and shot through with a lightness of spirit which is extremely uplifting." (BBC Music Magazine on 8.559202)

"Marin Alsop and the Bournemouth Symphony give it big licks with terrific playing on this new recording, as they do in Glass's more personal essay, 'The Light', from 1987, where everything turns to Glass." (The Herald on 8.559325)"
