Philip Glass, who recently celebrated his 80th birthday, chooses a sweeping simplicity and proves the age-old statement that less is more. His score for the film The Illusionist was widely acclaimed upon its release in 2006. The music for the film evokes the feeling of mystery and wonder that surrounds the famous magician Eisenheim and it is performed brilliantly by the Czech Film Orchestra under the baton of Michael Riesman.
The following is a list of compositions by Philip Glass. How Now for ensemble (also for piano, 1968). Music in Fifths (1969). Music in Similar Motion (1969). Music with Changing Parts (1970, recorded 1973). Music in Twelve Parts (1971–1974). Another Look at Harmony, Parts I and II (1975). Dance (Dance 1, 3 and 5, 1979, with Lucinda Childs and Sol LeWitt). A Descent Into the Maelstrom (based on the short story by Edgar Allan Poe, 1986).
With its sweeping simplicity, the film score for The Illusionist by composer Philip Glass again proves the age-old adage that less is more. The movie, set in Victorian Vienna, tells the tale of a mesmerizing magician who uses sorcery to help him transcend the boundaries of the aristocratic world, all so that he can embark upon a high-class romance. The story, based on a novel by Steven Millhauser, contains an inherent mysticism and spirituality perfectly molded to Glass' distinctive style
