is a work composed by acclaimed minimalist composer Philip Glass
for Solo Cello. Orbit
was commissioned by Damian Woetzel and premiered on the 2nd of April 2013, in a performance by cellist Yo-Yo Ma and dancer Lil Buck at Le Poisson Rouge in New York.
The performance was a celebration of the collaboration between an incredible young dancer, an unbelievable cellist and one of the most accomplished composers of the modern day. This Philip Glass sheet music, however, is all about the music. With a softly-evolving melody that begins as a basic pattern before turning back on itself and transforming, Orbit is the perfect soundtrack to a marriage of virtuoso musicianship, expressive dance and achingly tender solo instrumental composition. Check out Yo-Yo Ma, check out Lil Buck, but most importantly of all, be sure to look into our Orbit sheet music by Philip Glass.
