It’s a Glass family reunion tonight as composer Philip Glass and his cousin Ira Glass, host of National Public Radio’s “This American Life,” present an evening of music and storytelling to raise $300,000 for St. Ann’s Warehouse, the Brooklyn, New York performing-arts venue. (bloomberg.com)
Ira and Philip will perform Wichita Vortex Sutra.
A stream of a Philip Glass/Allen Ginsberg joint performance of same is here. I've not heard this version before; as usual, the poet is intense. Presumably, Ira will have a more modulated reading.
