2010: Crossing cultures


John Corigliano Stomp 
Philip Glass Double Concerto for violin and cello 
Shankar Symphony

Karen Kamensek conductor
Daniel Hope violin
Alban Gerhardt cello
Anoushka Shankar sitar
London Philharmonic Orchestra

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.

Generously supported by Cockayne and the London Community Foundation.
