Episode 51 – Robert Dillion (Third Coast Percussion) / Perspectives
On this episode of Classical Chicago, Third Coast Percussion’s Robert Dillon joins Jim Ginsburg in conversation about the Grammy Award-winning ensemble’s newest album. Perspectives, a prime example of Third Coast’s collaborative spirit, showcases four original and innovative works for percussion written by and/or with acclaimed composers Danny Elfman, Philip Glass, Jlin, and Flutronix.
Anthony McGill, New York Philharmonic principal clarinet and 2020 Avery Fisher Prize winner, and the multiple Grammy Award-winning Pacifica Quartet present an album illuminating experiences that have shaped America through works by Richard Danielpour, James Lee III, Ben Shirley (all three world-premiere recordings), and Valerie Coleman. McGill describes it as a project driven by the desire to “expand the capacity for art and music to change the world.”
