Notes and Editorial Reviews

Too funky for the academy, the Bang on a Can All-Stars emerged from the scruffy unvirons of downtown New York playing a new kind of music, with a new kind of energy, for a new kind of audience. This is the music that made them famous - their breakthrough CDs for Sony Classical, newly packaged, remastered onto one 74-minute disc. Music from Bang on a Can co-founders Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe, Bang on a Can All-Stars member and acclaimed composer-clarinettist Evan Ziporyn, and innovators Nick Didkovsky, Annie Gosfield, and Lois V Vierk. With this music, Bang on a Can cracked open a powerful new world. Hear why.
