2010: Crossing Cultures

The London Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2020 Vision brings you three genre-defying works from 2010 by Ravi Shankar, Philip Glass and John Corigliano.

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 its series 2020 Vision, the orchestra looks back at a year of genre-defying musical creativity, with Anoushka Shankar returning to reprise her solo part in the Symphony.

Two of the most adventurous soloists in western classical music, Daniel Hope and Alban Gerhardt, play 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.
