The Glass encounter was a rare instance of classical music reciprocity, unlike previous Shankar musical “collaborations” .Those were actually elaborate sessions with masters of other musical traditions joining Ravi to “jam” on his own music. Here, each composer presented thematic material to the other as raw material from which these finished pieces were fashioned. Passages contains four such co-ventures: a) two Glass compositions on themes by Shankar (Shankar / Glass); b) two Shankar compositions on themes by Glass (Glass / Shankar), c) as well as one piece from each composer completely of his own devising.
The result was an arresting example of musical collaboration.
