Bang on a Can 2010 Redux
An Evening of Musical Highlights from this past June's Musical Melting Pot
Wednesday, August 11, 2010
This Sunday, August 15 at 7 p.m., join Q2 for 5 consecutive hours of mind-bending, internationally-flavored sounds from this most quintessential New York New Music happening: the Bang on a Can Marathon from the World Financial Center Winter Garden.
Sample traditional Kyrgyz pieces for flute and percussion in the same breath as explorations in 3-channel, 1-bit electronics by Tristan Perich; Gamelan Galak Tika performing Evan Ziporyn as well as the JACK Quartet presenting music of an iconoclastic New Music rockstar of the recent past, Iannis Xenakis.
Also, don't miss a special 10 p.m. presentation of Michael Gordon, David Lang and Julia Wolfe's hour-length Shelter, as performed by Brad Lubman's Signal ensemble.
Were you at the 2010 Marathon? If so, are there any pieces that you absolutely want Q2 to share with fellow listeners this Sunday?
