More Info:

Dutch pianist Feico Deutekom offer a new perspective on Glass's piano Etudes, one of the landmark bodies of work in the 21st Century. The most common approach for pianists is to simple record Glass's twenty Etudes in straight order. However, Deutekom, one of the preeminent Glass specialists on the scene today, takes a much more personal approach. He performs and records the Etudes in a sequence which tells a very different story from Glass's own order. In fact, there's a historical case to be made for re-sequencing Glass's Etudes as the composer did himself when he renumbered 1-6 after the premieres. The result is a time-traveling musical adventure with a different dramatic arc from the familiar sequence.
