Product Description

In 1964, Terry Riley kicked off a revolution with his landmark piece, "In C" -- inspiring such young composers as Philip Glass and Steve Reich. Now, Bang on a Can reinterprets this minimalist claassic with an explosive combination of instruments from around the globe, propelling this transcendental 60's masterpiece into the future.

Bang on a Can prove once again why they're one of the most exciting New Music ensembles performing today with this riveting version of Terry Riley's In C. There are a handful of recordings available of this minimalist masterpiece, but Bang on a Can's--featuring violin, chimes, clarinet, mandolin, and bass at the fore--is easily one of the best. The delicate tremolo of Scott Kuney's mandolin gives the entire recording a nervous energy that's much needed on this New Music warhorse. The piercing violin of Todd Reynolds is haunting, and Mark Stewart's electric guitar gives the ensemble added sonic punch. Throughout, Bang on a Can sound less like they're jamming and more like a taut musical machine bursting at the seams, running through Riley's motifs with abandon. It's a new, slightly ominous take on In C, but one that was much needed. Recommended. --Jason Verlinde
