Philip Glass Composer on Tea With Tosh (Part One)





This episode of "Tea With Tosh"  is part one of a two-part interview with the great American Composer Philip Glass.  We discuss the nature and difference between the Opera/Theater and film soundtrack composing. At the time of this interview (1987), Glass finished his soundtrack work for the Paul Schrader film "Mishima," based on the works and life of Japanese writer Yukio Mishima.  Glass was very easy to interview.  He had a professional attitude about doing interviews.  He told me that every Wednesday (at that time) he set aside the time to talk to the press/media.  He's an engaging person, and also talked about his opera "Einstein on the Beach" and other operatic works such as "Satyagraha, "Akhnaten," the film "Koyaanisqatsi," and his 'pop' album "Songs from Liquid Days." One of the great 20th century composers. - Tosh Berman, Tea With Tosh
