    Philip Glass

    Philip Glass is a talented music composer  who has worked with some eminent and successful  musicians and singers like Mick Jagger and Paul SIMON. He has established his own group where he plays music as well as writes songs for them.

    Glass has not only written for films but has also written songs for operas and stage. He is one of the very few talented composers who can explore different kinds of music. From Western classical music to rock , Glass has mastered all. He also performs solo and plays many instruments.

    The movie compositions are truly classic and have made him a star. He has lent his talents to films like Kundun and Candyman , both of which show his skillful music direction. For the film Kundun, Glass got his very first Oscar nomination. Apart from movies and concerts, Glass also takes keen interest in composing music for documentaries.
