Over his long career, Philip Glass has written countless pieces of music for his ensemble: a band of his friends and close collaborators. In world-premiere arrangements commissioned by Carnegie Hall, Nico Muhly reimagines some of Glass's lesser-known music, performing them with his own community of musicians.
