Mr. Glassโ€™s sketches for โ€œMusic in Eight Partsโ€ date to late 1969, and it premiered in January 1970, placing it between โ€œMusic in Fifthsโ€ and โ€œMusic With Changing Parts,โ€ which paved the way for the monumental โ€œMusic in 12 Parts.โ€ The title refers not to the number of sections, but to its contrapuntal voices; with a running time of about 20 minutes, โ€œMusic in Eight Partsโ€ achieves its drama through rhythmic shifts and intricacy.
