Philip Glass’s Akhnaten.

Philip Glass’s Akhnaten. NOTES: Philip Glass is one of America’s best-known classical composers, whose work includes film scores for Koyaanisqatsi, The Thin Blue Line, and Kundun; the famous opera trilogy of Einstein on the Beach, Satyagraha, and Akhnaten; and numerous symphonies and popular works. At the same time, Glass’s non-traditional musical syntax, his experimental, minimalist approach, and his ambiguous tonality have long resisted interpretation, and indeed very few analyses of his compositional techniques have been published.

While Philip Glass's operas, film scores, symphonies, and popular works have made him America's best-known classical composer, almost no analysis of his compositional techniques grounded in current cultural theory has yet been published. In Akhnaten, Richardson says, the composer's concepts of sound and dramatic context, cultural theory, and gender construction intersect, providing perhaps the best demonstration of "the very nature of Glass's aesthetic, which places a strong emphasis on implicit levels of signification and steers clear of conventional 'story telling' narrative strategies.

Music by Philip Glass. Vocal text drawn from original sources by Shalom Goldman. The Pharaoh Akhnaten was the first monotheist in recorded story, and his substitution of a one-god religion for the multi-god worship in use when he came to power was responsible for his violent overthrow. The opera describes the rise, reign, and fall of Akhnaten in a series of tableaus.

A wonderful guide to the opera Akhnaten. This is one of those rare books of musicology that succeeds in keeping your attention with solid musicianly insights (and liberal musical examples to back them up), written with panache and dispassionate admiration of the subject material. Richardson has a dazzling literary style which shines a s light into Glass's arcane compositional processes. The musical analysis is careful and thorough.
