I'm looking forward to the release of the new recording of the "Low" Symphony; I've listened to the previews of the tracks on iTunes and I like the way the new performance sounds. Normally I don't get too excited about new releases of works I already have (and often I get so attached to the way the original sounds/is performed that it takes me a while to appreciate the newer versions) but this one sounds very clear and well phrased (if that makes any sense)!

I'm looking forward to any releases of new/unreleased works in the near future; I'd love to see 'Symphony No.10' released some time soon (I played the BBC Proms stream of the concert performance several times). So, while I appreciate OMM preserving the Glass back catalogue, I really yearn for the stuff that hasn't been recorded/released before, and any newer pieces that might get recorded.
