Sit tight and take the journey back to 1979 for a musical shock treatment. In that year, following on the heels of other Minimalist rebels like Terry Riley, Steve Reich and La Monte Young, Philip Glass forged a new style whose radical austerity thumbed its nose at every other music of the day, be it classical or popular.
