Editorial Reviews

Product Description

"One of the things I like about this disc is that all the pieces try to take classical music someplace it doesn't usually go," declares David Lang, the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer who co-founded the experimental classical music festival Bang on a Can.

Review

Although once a scruffy outsider as a co-founder of Bang on a Can, composer David Lang is part of the establishment now. The 52-year-old teaches at Yale University and won a Pulitzer Prize last year for his 'The Little Match Girl Passion' He still has the outsider attitude, though, saying that what he likes about this new collection of his work is that 'all the pieces try to take classical music someplace it doesn't usually go.'
The disc features the first recording of 'Pierced' a 15-minute triple concerto for piano, cello and percussion with agitated strings hovering over a stuttered rhythm -- the performance both bracing and hypnotic. Also here is Lang's classic 'Cheating, Lying, Stealing' (a piece with rhythmic novelties that Steve Reich said made him envious). The lovely piano piece 'Wed' shows Lang's more reflective side. Then there is his lyrical, Philip Glass-like arrangement of Lou Reed's Velvet Underground song 'Heroin', with Theo Bleckmann's detached vocal inhabiting the macabre soul of the song like a wraith. --Newark Star Ledger, Bradley Bambarger, February 23, 2009
