Bang on a Can All-Stars

February 2, 2017 @ 20:00

Freely crossing the boundaries between classical, jazz, rock, world and experimental music, New York’s electric chamber ensemble Bang on a Can All-Stars has consistently forged a distinct category-defying identity, taking music into uncharted territories and shattering the definition of what concert music is today. With a massive repertoire of works written specifically for the group, the All-Stars have become a genre in their own right.
For their UAE debut, the All-Stars play a program including signature works by Bang on a Can founders Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe, plus multi-media works from the All-Stars’ Field Recordings initiative by Steve Reich, Anna Clyne, Bryce Dessner, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Christian Marclay, and more. At the center is a world premiere piece commissioned by The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi and the Abu Dhabi Festival by celebrated Emirati-American composer Mohammed Fairouz. Their UAE debut will include a world premiere piece written for them by Emirati-American composer Mohammed Fairouz, commissioned by The Arts Center and the Abu Dhabi Festival.
