This celebratory event will explore Philip Glass' influence through a shared concert featuring performances by longtime Glass interpreters, the Kronos Quartet and electronic composer Jlin in her first performance honoring the composer. Featuring re-imaginings of Philip Glass compositions, and music Jlin has written for Kronos, the concert highlights how Glass’s compositions can be played, reimagined, extrapolated, and interpreted. The program will include new arrangements of Glass piano etudes commissioned for Kronos Quartet by composers Brian Carpenter and Aftab Darvishi; “Little Black Book”, a recent work for quartet written by Jlin as part of Kronos’ Fifty for the Future initiative; as well as new electronic music inspired by Glass’s music by Jlin.
Performances will be held at the Rainbow Room on Friday Ocotber 28th at 7:30PM and 9PM and are 70 minutes long without intermission. All tickets are general admission seating.
