The Music of William Bolcom and Philip Glass

including Suite of Preludes” (World Premiere) Composed by William Bolcom
Jenny Lin, piano

“Jenny Lin is a pianist of the first rank” – The Washington Post

“Music flows out of the way it flowed from Mozart…” – John Corigliano

“From opera to ragtime to rock, imaginative arrangements have moved countless individuals and left a lasting imprint on the world of music” – National Medal of Arts, 2003.

Pianist Jenny Lin brings the world premiere of National Medal of Arts, Pulitzer Prize, and GRAMMY Award-winning composer William Bolcom’s “Suite of Preludes” to Hudson Hall. Composed during lockdown, this new nine-movement suite shares the bill with music by Philip Glass, Bolcom’s friend and contemporary. The two met in the 1960s in Paris while Glass studied with teaching great Nadia Boulanger, and Bolcom with composer Darius Milhaud. Lin, who will perform one of Glass’ most recent pieces, Passacaglia, and selections from his soundtrack to the 2002 film The Hours, chose the repertory as a nod to her own fruitful collaboration with both composers.
