Experience the emotional intensity of Mozart’s G minor Symphony plus a pair of piano concerti with a special relationship. American composer Philip Glass’ new transcendent and hypnotic concerto, written for Simone Dinnerstein and co-commissioned by the Shreveport Symphony, was inspired by this Bach concerto.

“These two concertos, with their multiple, alternating voices and entwined repetitions, may reside on opposite ends of music history, but they share a common language that needs no translation―especially in such sympathetic performances.”   ~NPR Music
