Listen: Evan Ziporyn’s "Typical Music" on WQXR



Since its founding in 1992, New-Music ambassadors, the Bang on a Can All-Stars have converted countless listeners to contemporary music through their energetic and rousing performances that speak to the masses. The All-Stars are versatile artists who not only play their instruments with ferocious dedication but several members also lead double lives in other musical realms including composition, instrument designing and teaching.

Founding clarinetist, composer and MIT professor, Evan Ziporyn is one such Renaissance man and his works, Typical Music and No Return are spotlighted in this September 27 show at (Le) Poisson Rouge. He is flanked by violinist Todd Reynolds and fellow All-Stars, pianist Vicky Chow and cellist Ashley Bathgate.
