Product Notes

Orange Mountain Music is proud to present the premiere recording of Philip Glass's original score to the 2019 Broadway production of King Lear, which starred Glenda Jackson as Lear and Ruth Wilson as Cordelia/The Fool. For this new production, directed by Sam Gold and produced by Scott Rudin, Glass composed almost an hour of new music for string quartet. Complementing the quartet are three songs that Glass composed to the Shakespeare text featuring Ruth Wilson singing as part of a role that earned her a Tony nomination. Glass's quartet features violinists Natalie Cummins and Martin Agee, with Christopher Cardona on viola and Stephanie Cummins on cello. After over 100 Broadway performances, it was played in the recording studio with an absolute mastery that would not be possible for a concert piece. The recording was produced by Glass's long-time music director Michael Riesman.
