REF: 8718469534715 Categorias: , , Etiquetas: ,


The Photographeris a chamber operabyworld renowned composer Philip Glass, first performed in 1982 at theRoyal PalaceinAmsterdam. 

The story revolves around the life and work of photographer Eadweard Muybridge, the 19th century pioneer in photographic studies of motion and motion-picture projection. The centerpiece of the story is the trial for Muybridge’s murder of the alleged real father of his child, an accusation Muybridge was indeed found guilty of. Remarkable outcome of the trial was that Muybridge received no punishment on the grounds of ‘justifiable homicide’.

The Photographer is one of the works bridging the gap between Philip Glass’ earlier compositions up through Einstein on the Beach and his later pieces for more traditional instrumentation. The lyrics for the vocal parts were writtenby David Byrne (Talking Heads). Solo Violin: Paul Zukofsky. Conductor: Michael Riesman.
