New Release of Dreaming Awake Album

On September 30, 2016 Sono Luminus released Bruce Levingston’s Dreaming Awake, a special 2-CD album devoted to the music of Philip Glass. The album features solo works that span the length of Glass’s career including Etude No. 12 commissioned by Premiere Commission, Inc., along with guest artist Ethan Hawke narrating the Allen Ginsberg poem Wichita Vortex Sutra to the Philip Glass score. The album was named “Album of the Week" by New York City’s WQXR-Q2 which called the new release “[a] passionate and spontaneous portrait of the composer.... Dreaming Awake (Sono Luminus) is a boldly individual approach to the keyboard works of an American master." It was a bestseller on Amazon, hit the Top Twenty on Classical Billboard, and was named one of the “Top Albums of the Year” by Textura. For more information and orders, please go to Amazon.
