Philip Glass's iconic 1985 score to the Paul Schrader film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters, depicts
the life of the famous Japanese writer Yukio Mishima. For decades, the only extract from this
brilliant score was the string quartet music written for the black and white sections of the film and
published as String Quartet No.3. This new release by pianist Maki Namekawa is the first recording
of the complete Glass score since the original soundtrack in 1985. It was arranged for solo piano by
Glass's music director Michael Riesman.
