An album exploring the creation of classical music today


GRAMMY®-Award winning Third Coast Percussion presents an album exploring the myriad ways that classical music is being created today. Perspectives features four new works, each a world premiere recording, written for — and with — Third Coast Percussion by Danny Elfman, Philip Glass, Jlin, and Flutronix.

There are so many ways to create classical music, and this album explores four very different approaches that all, in their way, eschew the paradigms of the genre. The rich sonic universes created in these pieces reflect those approaches, as well as the identities of the music's creators, and the unique creative processes that formed the works.
