"Orange Mountain Music presents the world premiere recording of Philip Glass' A Madrigal Opera performed by Finland's Ooppera Skaala. Glass' second opera after the landmark Einstein on the Beach, A Madrigal Opera contains no narrative or subject matter. It is a work composed for future writers and directors to create in and around Glass score. It is structured like a traditional madrigal, with six voices and violin and viola accompaniment. Written in 1979, the work represented a huge musical step for the composer as he moved toward a more expressive idiom which later produced works like Satyagraha and Koyaanisqatsi."
