Philip Glass Book of Longing
A special evening of newly commissioned work based on the poetry of Leonard Cohen. Conceived
by Philip Glass over 6 years ago after Cohen himself read him most of the writings now published as Book of Longing, this music is the culmination of the mutual admiration between
two of America’s most celebrated and uncompromising artists. Glass sets Cohen’s deeply personal
and provocative words to a new score, performing with a new ensemble of singers and musicians.

Pre-concert talk 6.00pm

Book of Longing was commissioned by:
Lumniate Festival of Arts and Creativity, Toronto;
The Barbican, London; Lincoln Center Festival, New York; Wales Millennium Center, Cardiff; Stanford Lively Arts, Stanford University, University of Texas, Austin.
