The distinguished former Toronto Symphony Music Director, Peter Oundjian makes his HSO debut conducting Beethoven’s iconic Fifth Symphony. From opera houses, concert halls, the dance world, film, and pop, the music of Philip Glass has made him one of the most influential composers of our time. Robert McDuffie (for whom the American Four Seasons was composed) and Oundjian performed the world premiere of this Glass Violin Concerto in Toronto on December 9, 2009. Glass composed the work in the summer and autumn of 2009 after several years of exchanges between him and McDuffie with the idea of creating a piece that would serve as a companion to Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. They team up once again for this Hawaii premiere.
