PREVIEW | Missed The Philip Glass Premiere In Toronto? You’re In Luck

By Michael Vincent on April 7, 2022

Philip Glass

It’s hard to think of a more popular (and polarizing) composer than Philip Glass. It’s for this reason that last week’s world premiere at Roy Thomson Hall attracted a lot of attention from Glass fans.

The bad news

If you didn’t go, you missed it. For proof, you can read our review here.

The good news

The fine folks at NACO are offering Ludwig Van readers exclusive free access to watch the NAC Orchestra performing live in Ottawa, on April 14, 2022, 8 p.m.

The concert will include:

    • Nicole Lizée: Zeiss After Dark
    • Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 9
    • Erich Korngold: Violin Concerto In D Major, Op. 35; (James Ehnes, Violin)
    • Philip Glass: Symphony No. 13 (National Arts Centre Premiere

The promo code is GLASS13 for a complimentary livestream pass. ($15 ticket).

  1. Use this link, sign in to Ticketmaster or create an account
  2. Enter promo code here first (see screenshot here); not at checkout
  3. A complimentary ticket promo will appear

Why it matters

Glass’s Symphony No. 13, was commissioned by the Orchestra on the theme Truth in Our Time as a tribute to Canadian journalist Peter Jennings. Jennings was not only a highly respected news anchor for ABC News, he was also a founding director of the American chapter of the Friends of the NAC Orchestra, and served as a lifelong champion of Canadian artists.
