An Evening of Music with Laurie Anderson and Philip Glass at the Sunset Center in Carmel!
An Evening of Music with Laurie Anderson and Philip Glass will entail a unique musical collaboration between two giants of the avant-garde of the past 50 years. Thus far, this show has taken place only twice before, in Italy, and Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, TN.
Anderson is one of America’s most renowned—and daring—creative pioneers. Her work, which encompasses music, visual art, poetry, film, and photography, has challenged and delighted audiences around the world for more than 30 years.
She is best known for her multimedia presentations and musical recordings. Anderson’s first album, O Superman, launched her recording career in 1980, rising to number two on the British pop charts and subsequently appearing on her landmark release Big Science. She went on to record six more albums with Warner Brothers.
There has been nothing “minimalist” about Philip Glass’ output.
In the past 25 years, Glass has composed more than twenty operas, large and small; eight symphonies (with others already on the way); two piano concertos and concertos for violin, piano, timpani, and saxophone quartet and orchestra; soundtracks to films ranging from new scores for the stylized classics of Jean Cocteau to Errol Morris’s documentary about former defense secretary Robert McNamara; string quartets; and a growing body of work for solo piano and organ.
He has collaborated with Paul Simon, Linda Ronstadt, Yo-Yo Ma, and Doris Lessing, among many others. He presents lectures, workshops, and solo keyboard performances around the world, and continues to appear regularly with the Philip Glass Ensemble.
Tickholders, please join us early when Philip will hold a pre-show conversation with Jonathan Rose, a visionary in urban development and renewal, who champions the role of cities in addressing the environmental, economic, and social challenges of the twenty-first century.
Philip and Jonathan will discuss Mr. Rose’s new book “A Well Tempered City.” The lecture will begin at 6:15 PM in the theater.
Tickets: Level I $85 / Level II $65 / Economy $45
