Evelyn Glennie

Philip Smith

Famous for hitting anything that neither moves nor flinches, Evelyn Glennie does so with a flair, invention and imagination that has made her without doubt the world’s most celebrated percussionist. She creates new instruments, with a whole body of new repertoire for them to play. Here, collaborating with the pianist Philip Smith, she reconfigures old, established works for new, exploratory sound-worlds.
