Philip Morris Glass born January 31, 19371 is an American composer He is considered one of the most influential music makers of the late 20th century234
Although his compositions were often described as minimal music, as were other "minimalists" such as LaMonte Young, Terry Riley, Glass has since distanced himself from the "minimalist" label, describing himself instead as a composer of "music with repetitive structures",5 which he has helped evolve stylistically67 Currently, he describes himself as a "classicist", pointing out that he is trained in harmony and counterpoint and studied such composers as Franz Schubert, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with Nadia Boulanger8
Glass has founded a namesake musical group, the Philip Glass Ensemble, with which he still performs on keyboards, and has written 24 operas, musical theatre works, ten symphonies, eleven concertos, solo works, chamber music including seven string quartets and instrumental sonatas, and film scores Three of his film scores have been nominated for Academy Awards
