'Life' Proves that BSO Can be a Real Glass Act

"Another Glass work, the 1995 Concerto for Saxophone Quartet, opened the program. And whether you think Glass writes music of transcendent poetry or just cranks out tedious nonsense for slow thinkers, the Concerto is one of his more charming works, with an engaging blend of soaring lyricism and jazzy, metropolitan thrust. The Capitol Quartet brought the work alive with personality, enthusiasm and warmth -- matched fully by Alsop and the BSO players."
