The unassuming "New Releases" blog of WITF-FM (89.5 on your radio dial) presents a sneak peek at Philip Glass's gorgeous new Violin Sonata (No. 1!): So elegant. People don't tend to think "melody" when you say "Philip Glass," but he really is a superb melodist. I think a lot of violinists are going to want to learn this piece. (I do.) If you like this video, by the way, why not leave a comment thanking these fine fellows? Via, as ever, Glass Notes.
