Orbit was commissioned by Damian Woetzel and premiered on the 2nd of April 2013, in a performance bycellist 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 mostaccomplished 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, Orbitis 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 lookinto our Orbit sheet music by Philip Glass.

    Orbit for solo cello by Phillip Glass is a single movement piece which is a very tonal in design. I play solo cello for public events and I’m always looking for new works that spark the public’s interest, and Orbit fits this category rather well. Its simple design...

    reminds me of a Bach solo cello suite movement, but without making any direct quotes. It’s just a nice piece to add to ones quiver.

    Nice book. Clear notes. Plenty of room for writing notes for myself.
