This year the Bang on a Can All-Stars will give the world premieres of works by three PCF-commissioned composers: Glenn Kotche, Jace Clayton, and Ben Frost. The concert will also include the New York premiere of selections from Erdem Helvacioglu’s epic work Tales of Resistance and Oppression (premiered by the All-Stars in Istanbul in November 2013), Michael Gordon’s For Madeline, and music from the PCF vault: Donnacha Dennehy’s Streetwalker and Annie Gosfield’s Overvoltage Rumble. John Schaefer of WNYC-FM will host the evening for future radio broadcasts on his program, “New Sounds Live;” the concert will be streamed live on Q2 Music and will be available for on-demand listening at Q2Music.org.
