Program #2068

Virtuoso percussionist Evelyn Glennie plays a visiting alien in Michael Daugherty's UFO Concerto. This five-movement work is set in three movements - naturally, "Unidentified", "Flying", and "Objects" - and features mysterious percussion instruments played in unfamiliar ways. Also on tonight's program is the Thai Elephant Orchestra. Plus hear percussionist David Cossin, from a recent live performance on Soundcheck, and Eitetsu Hayashi & Yosuke Yamashita performing a bolero.
