« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, December 17, 2007

Take an orchestra, add Hawaiian guitar, electric piano, Tang dynasty poetry, and a liberal helping of virtuosity on the bass clarinet, and you’ll have “Frog’s Eye,” the latest release from clarinetist/composer Evan Ziporyn. Ziporyn is a co-founder and member of the Bang On A Can All-Stars and the Artistic Director and founder the American gamelan called Gamelan Galak Tika (resulting in some 25 years of experience with Balinese gamelan.) On the eve of a Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall concert of his “attempt at ancestor worship,” a musical homage to forbears Stravinsky and Woody Herman in a work called “Big Grenadilla,” he joins host John Schaefer to present selections from his first CD of orchestral works.
