Witness the spellbinding presence of Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie -- A collaborator with musicians as diverse as Bjork, Bela Fleck and Bobby McFerrin -- as she joins the BPO in the World Premiere of Eric Ewazen's Percussion Concerto.
A world-renowned percussionist despite being profoundly deaf since the age of 12, she often performs in barefoot -- "hearing" the music with her body. JoAnn Falletta conducts the program, leading the ensemble in Gershwin's Cuban Overture and Revueltas' Night of the Mayas.
