The late Ravi Shankar was a musician who brought worlds together, and when the LPO premiered his Symphony in 2010, it attracted global attention. As part of 2020 Vision we look back at a year of genre-defying musical creativity, with Anoushka Shankar returning to reprise her solo part in the Symphony, and two of the most adventurous soloists in western classical music, Daniel Hope and Alban Gerhardt, playing the brilliant, balletic Double Concerto by Philip Glass, another composer who transcends – and transforms – musical conventions. John Corigliano’s uproarious Stomp, meanwhile, does exactly what it says on the tin.
Part of Southbank Centre’s Shankar 100 celebrations.
