Aachen “Last Night” Concert | Reviews

Evelyn and Tim after a concert in Aachen, Germany.

“Aachen. The silvery long hair falls like a veil over her face. Evelyn Glennie has gently knelt on the floor, picking up two chopsticks with the movements of an archaic priestess and stroking short tubes – krrrack, krrrrack. The sound is painful and unexpected, the audience listens. The British percussionist (54), ruler of about 1500 percussion instruments, showered with honorary … Read More

Concert With Singapore Chinese Orchestra by The Straits Times | Read Full Review Here “Glennie took centre stage in Japanese marimba virtuoso Keiko Abe’s Prism Rhapsody, a true dialogue between orchestra and marimba.
