Description Originally created for the 2004 Olympiad in Athens, Philip Glass’s Orion is a dynamic piece, international in scope. For its BAM performance, Glass himself performed alongside nearly a dozen musicians from around the world, virtuosos on their native instruments. Some of these included Wu Man (pipa), Mark Atkins (didgeridoo), Foday Musa Suso (kora), and Kartik Seshadri (sitar).
