Marin Alsop conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in an all-Glass programme, including the UK premiere of his Concerto, written for renowned piano duo and siblings, Katia and Marielle Labèque.
As a young violinist, Marin Alsop led the orchestra in the first recording of Glass’s The Photographer, and has long championed the influential Minimalist’s music. She also conducts Itaipú, Glass’s choral homage to the world’s largest hydroelectric dam, and the prelude to the opera Ahknaten about the Egyptian pharaoh.
