Vincent Ho’s The Shaman: Concerto for Percussion and Orchestra premièred by the WSO in 2011 is a powerhouse work that showcases Scottish dynamo percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie. The mostly older audience of 1,800, impressed by the sheer fury and might of Ho’s three-movement work (with interlude) leapt to their feet in a rousing standing ovation, with cries of bravo for Glennie’s dazzling performance.
