Sitarist Shankar Salutes Her Father & Philip Glass
Ravi Shankar was the Hendrix of sitar, introducing Indian traditions into rock music via the Beatles and changing the sound of the '60s. Around the same time, composer Philip Glass began experimenting with minimalism, eventually taking the style to new heights. In 1990, these two greats collaborated on the album Passages, and now Pacific Symphony is joining up with Shankar's daughter and fellow sitar soloist, Anoushka, to pay tribute to the duo. They'll soon be making their Carnegie Hall debut with the program to celebrate Glass' 80th birthday, but you can see it first at Orange County's Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Also on the program is The Passion of Ramakrishna, which Glass composed for the Pacific Symphony and Pacific Chorale, and Shankar's Sitar Concerto No. 3.
