About this Recording

LANG, D.: Pierced / Heroin / Cheating, Lying, Stealing / How to Pray / Wed (Real Quiet)

“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. “There is no name yet for this kind of music,” wrote Mark Swed of The Los Angeles Times, but audiences everywhere hear and love it; from New York to Tokyo, BBC Proms to Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Next Wave Festival, Strasbourg Festival to Sydney 2000 Olympic Arts Festival. Pierced is an unconventional concerto, jazzy and ominous; Heroin resets Lou Reed’s ‘dangerous’ Velvet Underground song; Cheating, Lying, Stealing is a calling card for the Bang on a Can All-Stars; the trance-inducing Wed commemorates the memory of visual artist Kate Ericson.
