Buildings in Soho. Buildings in Soho. (Jenchapter3/flickr)

One of the nice things about having the WQXR studios in Soho is access to a number of artists living in the area. Phillip Glass is not far away and his opera ‘Einstein on the Beach’ was presented at BAM recently. Before its opening, Glass and his ensemble came into The Greene Space where he talked about his early career as a New York pianist and about his breakthrough moment as a composer. 

We’ hear Glass's comments as well as music by Wagner, David Lang and reflections on the concept of “"Angel”" from Marcus Roberts and Gavin Bryars.
