Watch live videos of Philip Glass Piano Etudes | Richard Serra Drawings
It was a pleasure to stage my second MusicArt collaboration with Ordovas – Philip Glass Piano Etudes | Richard Serra Drawings – as part of the gallery’s 10th anniversary exhibition in December 2021. The concert celebrated the decades-long close artistic friendship between Serra and Glass. I performed Glass’s mesmerising Piano Etudes: 2, 3, 5, 6 and 9 alongside Serra's drawings, Orchard Street #82, 2018.
Watch the video of Etude No. 6 filmed by Classic FM.
The full video with highlights from the concert is available on YouTube.
