Ravi Shankar and Philip GlassPassages (1st complete live performance)

In the mid-1960s a rising star of Western classical music met the ‘Godfather’ of the Indian classical tradition. The result was a collision of musical worlds and – some 25 years later – a studio album that combined Glass’s American Minimalism with Shankar’s sitar and the traditions of Hindustani classical music. A hypnotic ow of sound, blending cello, saxophone and other Western instruments with the glittering pulse of the sitar, Passages is presented here in its rst complete live performance. The Britten Sinfonia and Karen Kamensek are joined by Shankar’s daughter, sitar virtuoso Anoushka Shankar.  

Tickets £7.50 - £25.
