It’s not everyday that a famous composer comes to town to premiere a new work. That day came for San Diego in 2007 when composer Philip Glass made his way to the beautiful beach community of La Jolla for the American debut of his piece, Cello Concerto, with the renowned La Jolla Symphony and Chorus, an ensemble affiliated with UC San Diego.
Also classing up the place was cellist Wendy Sutter and conductor Steven Schick, all of whom are featured in this short video introduction, new on UCTV Prime Cuts. Once you’ve got your primer, it’s time to watch the performance itself.
Chances are you’ll be hungry for more, so consider perusing our complete collection of diverse La Jolla Symphony and Chorus performances and behind the curtain interviews that we’ve made available over the years. Enjoy!
