Sitar meets symphony orchestra when Philip Glass’s famous collaborations with Ravi Shankar are remembered. “Meetings Along the Edge” from Passages weaves Eastern themes with classic Glass motifs. On a grand scale, there’s the New York premiere of the complete version of The Passion of Ramakrishna, a quietly intense work of tremendous power honoring the Hindu holy man. Shankar’s daughter, Anoushka Shankar, is also center stage when she performs his Concerto No. 3 for Sitar and Orchestra.
