    During a twelve hour straight through run, the pianist Nicolas Horvath, who adores epic concerts and other types of ‘outsize’ projets, interprets the totality of the works for piano by Philip Glass in the chronological order of composition.This pilgrimage is tantamount to a total immersion into the universe of one of the greatest American minimalist composers.
