Carl St. Clair by Marco Borggreve, Anoushka Shankar by simonyc
Sitar meets symphony orchestra when Philip Glass’s famous collaborations with Ravi Shankar are remembered. “Meetings Along the Edge” from Passages weaves Eastern themes with classic Glass motifs. On a grand scale, there’s the New York premiere of the complete version of The Passion of Ramakrishna, a quietly intense work of tremendous power honoring the Hindu holy man. Shankar’s daughter, Anoushka Shankar, is also center stage when she performs his Concerto No. 3 for Sitar and Orchestra with the Orange County–based Pacific Symphony, led by its music director of 28 seasons, Carl St.Clair.
