Patti Smith & Philip Glass (2009 Season)

Sat, Feb 14, 2009 @ 8:00 PM, Campbell Hall OLD

Footnote to Howl The Poet Speaks, Homage to Allen Ginsberg Patti Smith, voice Philip Glass, piano Jackson Smith, guitar U.S. premiere! “[Smith is] art rock’s great provocateur” The Guardian, London “I don’t think any rock band or songwriter brings the kind of innovation to the contemporary music landscape that [Glass] does.” The New York Times Punk-rock poetess Patti Smith and the founding father of minimalism, Philip Glass, pay special tribute to their dual inspiration, in an evening of poetry, music and song honoring the great Beat poet Allen Ginsberg. Glass is an Oscar-nominated composer, while Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer Smith helped define alternative music. The Guardian, London, writes, “This tribute to the late iconic beat poet Allen Ginsberg by minimalist demigod Philip Glass and grande dame of punk verse Patti Smith is steeped in spirituality…Ginsberg would have bowed beatifically.”
