Yes, today marks the 70th birthday of Philip Glass, Mr. Einstein on the Beach himself.
Hey, I looked up the date Arvo Pärt was born, to see if my theory of "This Is The Decade Where Contemporary-Classical Composers Turn 70" was correct and it's correct! Pärt celebrated his 70th in 2005 and of course, my boy Reich turned the big SEVEN OH last year. Who'll it be in 2008?
Tune in next year to "The Decade Where Contemporary-Classical Composers Turn 70".
