Hymn to the Sun

One often does not get the opportunity to perform Philip Glass; after all, as far as I know, he never wrote anything specifically for period instruments. This July, I join the ensemble Thoroughbass, in conjunction with Ondine Productions, to take matters into our own hands and rework this modern composer's opera, Akhnaten, for period instruments. It is going to be an interesting project, something that may prove slightly more challenging that the usual early music repertoire which I am accustomed. I believe the result is something that will surprise many (in a good way!). Here are the details of the cast and performance:
