Evelyn ha encargado ciento cincuenta nuevas obras para percusión solista de muchos de los compositores más eminentes del mundo y también compone y graba música para cine y televisión. Su primer score de alta calidad tuvo tanto éxito que fue nominada a los premios de la Academia Británica de Cine y Televisión (BAFTA); el equivalente en el Reino Unido de los Oscar. La carrera discográfica de Evelyn ha sido tan brillante como su carrera de interpretación y composición

Evelyn Glennie | Tour 2018 Europe

Dame Evelyn Glennie DBE Evelyn es la primera persona en la historia musical en crear y mantener con éxito una carrera a tiempo completo como percusionista solista. Uno de los músicos más eclécticos e innovadores de la escena actual, redefine constantemente los objetivos y las expectativas de la percusión. Combinando una excelente técnica, una profunda apreciación de lo visual y su asombrosa musicalidad, Evelyn crea interpretaciones de tal vitalidad que casi constituyen un nuevo tipo de interpretación. Evelyn ofrece más de 100 actuaciones al año en todo el mundo, a menudo con los mejores directores, orquestas y artistas. Durante los primeros diez años de su carrera prácticamente cada actuación que dio fue de alguna manera la primera. Su diversidad de colaboraciones han incluido actuaciones con artistas como Nana Vasoncelos, Kodo, Bela Fleck, Bjork, Bobby McFerrin, Emanuel Ax, Sting, cantantes del rey, Coro del Tabernáculo Mormón y Fred Frith.

Music isn’t all about leaving the audience wanting more. It’s also about making them think and giving them an experience

Evelyn’s first CD, a recording of Bartok’s Sonata for two Pianos and Percussion, won her a Grammy in 1988.  A further two Grammy nominations followed, one of which she won in 2002 for a collaboration with Bela Fleck for Sony Classical.  Evelyn’s twelfth solo CD, Shadow Behind the Iron Sun (BMG Records), was based on a radical concept and has once again questioned people’s expectations.  Despite working a relentless schedule Evelyn is in constant demand to release new recordings, twenty five so far.

Outside of actual performance the Evelyn Glennie brand is constantly exploring other areas of creativity, such as writing a best selling autobiography (Good Vibrations), collaborating with the renowned film director Thomas Riedelsheimer on a film called Touch the Sound, presenting two series of her own television programmes (Soundbites) for the BBC, and making regular appearances on television across the world, including The David Letterman Show (USA), Sesame Street (USA), The South Bank Show (UK), presenting and performing on Songs of Praise (UK), Commonwealth Games Festival Concert, This is Your Life (UK), 60 minutes (USA), PBS Profile (USA) and many more. Evelyn’s activities also include lobbying the Government on political issues; her consortium with Sir James Galway, Julian Lloyd Webber and the late Michael Kamen successfully led to the government providing £332 million towards music education.  Other aspects include Evelyn Glennie Images which supplies photographs from a vast image library of Evelyn, Evelyn Glennie Jewellery, which is a range of jewellery designed in conjunction with Ortak and based on her influences as a solo percussionist and Evelyn Glennie Merchandise.  Evelyn is also an international motivational speaker to many diverse corporate companies and events.  Evelyn also performs with orchestras on the Great Highland Bagpipes. After 20 years in the music business Evelyn has begun teaching privately, which allows her to explore the art of teaching and to explore the world of sound therapy as a means of communication. In 1993 Evelyn was awarded the OBE (Officer of the British Empire), extended in 2007 to ‘Dame Commander’ for her services to music, and to date she has received over eighty international awards.  She is brimming with ideas to improve the experience for the audience and continues to redefine the very format of live performance itself.
