Riesman is a veteran of Glass' ensemble, and his piano version of the score is probably as effective an arrangement for the instrument as is possible, and it can be fully enjoyed for what it is. The original version has the advantage of a broader color palette, and in particular, the expressive possibilities for string vibrato, critical in a work this melodramatic, and the power that comes from notes sustaining without any decay.

I'm resurrecting here some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real project behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the tide. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
