Evan Ziporyn, a founding member of the famous Bang On A Can, played an outstanding set for Solo Clarinet & Bass Clarinet last Sunday at the Noguchi Museum in New York. The performance took place at the sculpture garden and included original pieces as well as pieces by Steve Reich and David Lang. Evan Ziporyn’s performance is part of the ongoing collaboration between the museum and Bang On A Can to bring “Music In The Garden” series to the public.
The last performance will take place on September 12th 2010 with Tristan Perich.
Bang On A Can Marathon took place in The World Financial Center this year with music flowing non-stop for more than 12 hours defying all borders between genres and really making it hard for music lovers to take a break. Every time a new group emerged on the stage, we got swept away and taken by their ingenuity and brilliance.
The photos show the following performers in the event. I only stayed for 10 hours and took a few walks to stretch my legs!
