The PhilipGlass.com calendar has just been updated with a slew of interesting additions. That's right, a slew. Philip Glass and musicians are about to perform BOOK OF LONGING in Italy, Istanbul and Greece. Glass will perform two dates in Ireland, including one chamber music concert with cellist Wendy Sutter performing SONGS & POEMS. In July, there's SYMPHONY NO.3 in London, the premiere of FOUR MOVEMENTS FOR TWO PIANOS in Germany, worldwide screenings of the Scott Hicks documentary, the VIOLIN CONCERTO by the Los Angeles Philharmonic with Leonard Slatkin, Book of Longing continues to tour in September in Italy and Australia, the premiere of LOS PAISAJES DEL RIO in Spain, EINSTEIN ON THE BEACH in Belgium, the SMITH QUARTET is touring the world performing the Glass String Quartets, the BRUCKNER ORCHESTER LINZ performs the VIOLIN CONCERTO in November with Dennis Russell Davies, and in the beginning of 2009 there will be a new production of HYDROGEN JUKEBOX performed in France, the PHILIP GLASS ENSEMBLE will do MUSIC IN 12 PARTS in San Francisco, SYMPHONY NO.6 "PLUTONIAN ODE" in Holland, "THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER" in Germany…and the beat goes on…check your local listings. Keep in mind most orchestras haven't announced their 2008-09 seasons.

Got my tickets for “Music in 12 Parts” on 2009-02-16 in SF.
I’m making a special trip to SF just to see the performance.
SF Performances is already selling non-subscription tickets for this performance, despite its web site saying that non-subscription tickets go on sale Aug 18.
Does anyone know where Symphony #3 is going to be performed in London? Googling “Primavera Chamber Orchestra” leads to dead ends.
Try this number for Symphony No3. 01732866219
I called it and the guy told me it was only the last movement of the symphony being performed!
Thanks for the info. Though, if it’s only the last movement… I don’t think it’s worth further pursuit.
