Acclaimed keyboardist James McVinnie and his ensemble explore an eclectic range of music including Philip Glass' Glassworks.
James McVinnie Ensemble is a collective of virtuoso keyboardists dedicated to exploring work preoccupied with political themes by contemporary and emerging composers. The ensemble’s roots go back to 2017 with a performance at London’s Barbican Centre of Music in Twelve Parts by Philip Glass– the only performance in the piece’s history given by anyone other than the Philip Glass Ensemble.
The group launched in its current incarnation in 2021 with composer portraits of John Adams, Philip Glass & Gabriella Smith at Bold Tendencies. In November they gave the world premiere of Chris P Thompson’s True Stories & Rational Numbers and a new arrangement of Philip Glass’s seminal Glassworks to a capacity crowd at London’s Barbican Centre.
