Philip Glass Half Full

Philip Glass Half Full | Music, Theatre, and Dance | Scoop.it

For all its manifold beauties, the classical music of the 20th century has yet to become popular in America.

Passing gated-up storefronts and overlit hotel lobbies, we stop in front of a sign that reads Dos Naciones: Museo de Tragos y Arrabal, which Google tells me translates to something like Two Nations: Museum of Drinks and Suburbs, though I know that’s probably incorrect.
