Bruce Levington has a long association with composer Philip Glass. In 2004, the composer wrote his musical tribute to Chuck Close expressly for Levingston who later premiered the piece at Lincoln Center in New York City." The next year, Levingston and Glass joined again in the same venue for a concert of piano duets which also featured Levingston's longtime friend, Ethan Hawke. This group of artists has joined together once more for this release of Glass's works. Levinston is an internationally recognized concert pianist and recording artist, whose last album, "Heavy Sleep," garnered the praise of audiences and critics, being named one of New York Times' "Best Recordings of the Year." This release includes the world premiere recording of "The Illusionist Suite," as well as ten of the composer's deeply moving Etudes. This two disc set has already been praised by media outlets. The New York Times recognizes "Mr. Levingston's mastery of nuance and color," and MusicWeb International praised his "extraordinary gifts as a colorist and performer who can hold attention rapt with the softest playing.".
