Bang on a Can All-Stars
Bang on a Can Classics
The Bang on a Can All-Stars emerged from the scruffy environs of downtown New York playing a new kind of music, with a new kind of energy, for a new kind of audience. This reissue has the music that made them famous – their breakthrough CDs for Sony Classical newly packaged and remastered onto one 74-minute disc. Enjoy.
Music by Nick Didkovsky, Michael Gordon, Annie Gosfield, David Lang, Lois V. Vierk, and Evan Ziporyn.
“The All-Stars, who are highly amplified and carefully mixed in concert, come across here as a fiercely aggressive group, combining the power and punch of a rock band with the precision and clarity of a chamber ensemble.”
–The New York Times, 1995
Top 10 of 2002; “Smashing avant sampler.”
-Keith Powers, Boston Herald
