From the Archive: A Taxi Ride with Philip Glass

In this archive episode from 2012, Ben Eshmade looks back at one of his favourite podcast interviews for the Barbican - that time he ended up on a taxi ride and musical journey with American minimalist composer, Philip Glass. 

Recorded around his 75th birthday, Glass was in London ready to present his ground-breaking opera, Einstein on the Beach and later, a live music screening of his 1982 score to the film, Koyaanisqatsi. 

From the Archive sees us dig into our extensive contemporary and classical music and cinema podcast archive as we rediscover interviews and discussions with artists, with our long-standing producer and presenter, Ben Eshmade.
