  • Overview
    Music by Philip Glass from Lisa Moore’s 2015 Mad Rush CD (Orange Mountain Music) presenting music with roots in motion pictures, opera, Ghandi, and Buddhism. Mad Rush was written for the Dalai Lama’s dramatic 1981 entrance into St. John the Divine Cathedral, NYC. Metamorphosis I was composed for The Thin Blue Line – a 1988 Errol Morris documentary about Randall Dale Adams who was wrongfully convicted of murdering a police officer and sentenced to death. Metamorphosis II was featured in The Hours – a film based on Virginia Woolf. Satyagraha Act III Conclusion is a 7 minute piano arrangement of the opera’s final scene. “Satyagraha” is Sanskrit for “truth force”. Satyagraha deals with Gandhi’s early years in South Africa and his development of non-violent protest. “Closing” is a solo arrangement of the Music in Twelve Parts finale. Etude no. 2 completes the concert, building rich resonance over a lilting 7/8 – 4/4 rhythm.
