Philip Glass rewrites symphony ending for Carnegie Hallmain
Two weeks before the Bruckner Orchestra of Linz departs on its third US tour with conductor Dennis Russell Davies, the composer Philip Glass has been writing against the clock to change the ending of his new 11th symphony.
It is scheduled for premiere at Carnegie Hall on January 31, the composer’s 80th birthday.
‘In rehearsal,’ said Glass, ‘I found there were various things that needed repairing.’
Anyone remember his first LP (below)?
A prophetic title.
