Bang On A Can People'S Commissioning Fund
Tuesday, March 22, 2011
On this New Sounds program, we'll hear music from our New Sounds Live collaboration with the Ecstatic Music Festival: the Bang on a Can People's Commissioning Fund Concert recorded at Merkin Hall. The All-Stars perform Steve Martland's propulsive "Horses of Instruction." Also, listen to the hauntingly subtle “Convex/Concave/Concord” by Danish composer Pelle Gudmunsen-Holmgreen, and the intensely grooving “Believing” by Bang on a Can co-founder Julia Wolfe. And more.

Hear the world premiere of Bryce Dessner's "O Shut Your Eyes Against the Wind," performed by the Bang on a Can All-Stars from the People's Commissioning Fund Concert at Merkin Hall, recorded as part of New Sounds Live and the Ecstatic Music Festival. Incidentally, Bryce plays with both the vocal-chamber-rock ensemble, Clogs, and the indie rock hometown heroes, the National. Also, we will hear the other world premieres commissioned by the people: Nick Brooke's playful "Menace (Sousa Medley)" and Karsh Kale's world premiere, "Crawl Walk Run Fly."
