To describe Philip Glass (b. 1937) – who trained in mathematics, philosophy, art and twelve-tone technique – as one of the leading representatives of minimal music has become something of a shameful platitude. In contrast, the significance of the two concerts to be held in Hamburg and Berlin in 2020 under the title »Philip Glass & Friends« is not to be underestimated. From the 1979 piece »Mad Rush« and a number of etudes for solo piano to »Closing« (1981) – the eight works performed represent a cross-section from Glass’s oeuvre and are guaranteed to be one of the highlights of the year’s packed calendar of events.

Please note: This event replaces the cancelled concert from 15 June 2020. Tickets purchased for the postponed concert are valid for this event.
