On August 7 at 7:30PM at (le) poisson rouge in NYC, GRAND BAND will perform a captivating program of music for six pianos by composers including Steve Reich, Julia Wolfe, Philip Glass, and Kate Moore.

Fresh off the heels of its ‘awesome’ (Sequenza21) debut at the 2012 Bang on a Can Marathon, this ‘super-group of soloists’ (The Glass) provides another rare opportunity to hear a live performance of contemporary music for six pianos. With a program including Steve Reich’s iconic ‘Six Pianos,’ Julia Wolfe’s Aretha Franklin-inspired ‘my lips from speaking…,’ and a new version of an immersive work by up-and-coming composer Kate Moore, this concert promises to be a new music highlight of the summer.

GRAND BAND is a new piano sextet featuring six of New York City’s top pianists: Vicky Chow, David Friend, Paul Kerekes, Blair McMillen, Lisa Moore and Isabelle O’Connell. Described as “awesome” (Sequenza21) following their performance of Steve Reich’s Six Pianos at this year’s Bang on a Can marathon in June, this stunning collection of performers creates a powerful sonic force. Of the group’s debut performance, Lucid Culture wrote: “Grand Band had a ball [in the Wolfe], each wearing an ear monitor so as to catch the innumerable, suspenseful series of cues as the gospel licks grew from spacious and minimalist to a joyously hammering choir,” and The Glass declared “the 6 pianists are a super-group of soloists that played what sounded kind of like classical pop-crossover meets post-minimal.” A thoroughly modern ensemble, Grand Band is a champion of new music and living composers.
