The New York Iconic Composer Tackles the Infamous Ninth Symphony

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

On January 31, 2012 at 4 pm, Q2 Music celebrates the 75th birthday of iconic, New York composer Philip Glass with a premiere Webcast of his Symphony No. 9 with conductor Dennis Russell Davies and the Bruckner Orchester Linz. Only released today to coincide with his 75th birthday and the American Composers Orchestra's Carnegie Hall concert celebration, Glass's Symphony No. 9 comes during a remarkably fruitful and diverse anniversary year, which includes countless premieres, recordings and the revival of his landmark opera Einstein on the Beach.

We hope you're excited as we are to hear how Glass has tackled the infamous ninth symphony. If you get a chance to listen in, leave your thoughts and reactions in the comments section below.
