Philip Glass: Music for 2 Pianos
When conductor/pianist Dennis Russell Davies directed our Lou Harrison concert in February he said, “And now I’d like to do a benefit for Other Minds.” He and his partner Maki Namekawa are flying back from Austria to perform a special concert of Philip Glass’ music for two pianos in a very intimate setting for our fans.
The event will take place 7:30pm, Wednesday, December 6, 2017, at St. John’s Presbyterian Church in Berkeley, in honor of Glass’ eightieth birthday. It will feature the suites from Jean Cocteau’s Les Enfants Terribles and La Belle et la Bête for two pianos and wind octet in its American premiere. In addition, a major work composed for the Davies-Namekawa duo–which Dennis fondly calls “a real barnburner!”–Four Movements for Two Pianos, will complete the program.
