Philip Glass Live

Carnegie Hall tonight will live-stream The Philip Glass Ensemble performing one of the minimalist composer’s earliest works, 1970’s “Music with Changing Parts.” You can see it for free at 8 pm ET over Carnegie Hall’s website or Facebook page.

The webcast is presented in partnership with Medici.tv, described as “the world’s leading classical music channel” with ”the world’s largest catalog of on-demand concerts, ballets, operas, documentaries, master classes, behind-the-scenes footage, and interviews.”

Medici.tv offers both free and pay viewing options. For no charge, you get to see livestreams like tonight’s Glass event, as well as replays of previous concerts – like Pauchi Sasaki’s world premiere of OMAGUA, introduced by her mentor Philip Glass, from earlier this month in Berlin.

You can also sign up for a “premium” subscription plan, which adds access to over 1,800 on demand titles, high definition, and the ability to watch on your TV via Chromecast or Airplay. You pay $13.93 for “the first month” of a monthly subscription, or $132.30 for “the first year” of an annual subscription. Recurring prices are not specified on Medici.tv’s sign-up page.

Because The Savvy Screener recently reported on Romeo and Juliet offerings from performing arts streamers Cennarium and Marquee, we feel obligated to tell you that  Medici.tv premium subscribers can see Rudolf Nureyev’s 1995 production of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet by the Paris Opera Ballet. The ballet stars Monique Loudières as Juliet and Manuel Legris as Romeo.

Tonight’s Philip Glass concert, conducted by Michael Riesman, will also feature the San Francisco Girls Chorus conducted by Valérie Sainte-Agathe, and students from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. You can see it live at carnegiehall.org/medici or facebook.com/CarnegieHall.
