The Bang on a Can All-Stars have led our charge into new territories around the world - Marathons in Dublin and Seattle, tours of Korea and China and Russiaand multiple performances of the CMA commissioned piece Trems by Ty Braxton - all in the last year.

Robert Schumann’s “Fünf Stücke im Volkston” were written for cello and piano. Clara Schumann thought them beguiling, fresh, & original. Already arranged for other instruments, and popular for good reason, “Five Pieces” is now available for alto flute.
I'm very happy to have one of my pieces for strings and solists being released on video.
This is "TRILOKA - Three Realms".
Solists are Bruno Raberg bass, Rob Thomas violin and Mike Block cello.
Pianist and composer Edward Simon will create House of Numbers, a 40-minute suite in four movements exploring the cross-cultural meanings of numbers and the possibilities offered by bringing jazz and classical musicians together.
