Avant-garde composer Philip Glass turns 80. In the prelude to his birthday, the Nederlands Kamerkoor and chief-conductor Peter Dijkstra perform chamber choir works by Philip Glass and composers he inspired.

Glass is seen as the ‘Godfather of minimal music’, even though Glass rather calls his own work ‘music with a repetitive structure’. The programme is complemented with works by Arvo Pärt, David Lang and Thomas Jennefelt, the ‘musical soulmate’ of Glass.
