Paul Barnes has collaborated with composer Philip Glass for more than 20 years. His Philip Glass Retrospective, in celebration of this collaboration and Glass’s 80th birthday, features Barnes’s transcriptions from the Trilogy Sonata and Orphée Suite for Piano, as well as Piano Concerto No. 2 (After Lewis and Clark), which Barnes commissioned and premiered. Barnes will also perform several of Glass’s new Etudes, which are featured on his latest recording, New Generations. Barnes will be joined by Westminster piano faculty member Phyllis Alpert Lehrer to perform Glass’s Four Movements for Two Pianos.
Paul Barnes has been featured four times on APM’s Performance Today and his recordings are broadcast worldwide. Deeply inspired by the aesthetic vision of minimalism, Barnes commissioned and gave the world premiere of Philip Glass’s Piano Concerto No. 2 (After Lewis and Clark).
Phyllis Alpert Lehrer is known internationally as a performer, teacher, clinician, author, and adjudicator. She has given master classes, workshops, and enjoyed an active concert career as a soloist and collaborative artist in the United States, Canada, Central America, Asia, and Europe.
