Amazing Concert… Wish I could be there!!

April 23, 2009

I wish I was in New York City right now! Terry Riley, Philip Glass, The Kronos Quartet and many others will be performing Terry Riley’s “In C” live at Carnegie Hall tomorrow night to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the work.

I REALLY hope that there is a CD recording of this event, not to mention a live DVD, which would be more epic than the second coming of Christ.

More info here: In C Live at Carnegie Hall

If you have no idea what “In C” is, buy this recording, it will change your life: Terry Riley – “In C” by the Paul Hillier and The Percurama Percussion Ensemble

CBC?!

January 16, 2009

So, just when I thought that playing Philip Glass’ First Symphony with the CPO was exciting enough, it turns out that the Friday night performance is going to be recorded by the CBC and broadcast nationally on a later date! To top it all off I get to see Glass’ solo piano concert on Wednesday, and hopefully met him (fingers crossed!!!!) after that concert!

Here is a great Youtube Video of Glass in action at home in New York City:
