Re: Philip Glass Symphony No.10

Shortly after submitting this review I heard from a member of the Good Music Guide discussion board that there is a recent documentary which shows a workshop of assistants writing Glass's music for him, while Glass gives vague and even inane advice like "this is good, but make it a sextet instead."
I have yet to see the footage myself, and can't vouch for it, but if this is true, it certainly accounts for the total lack of quality control Glass has shown in recent years.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
