"Philip Glass' 2001 Concerto No.1 for Cello and Orchestra has a unique story. Following the terror attacks in New York in September 2001, Glass was discouraged from traveling in the immediate aftermath and consequently missed the world première of the work in Beijing in October with cellist Julian Lloyd Webber. It was not until 2007 that Glass had the chance to hear the work live in the concert hall when Wendy Sutter performed the US première in California. Glass encouraged Sutter to perform the work extensively and this recording was made during a tour with the Orchestra of the Americas."
