On January 15, Grand Band performs Simeon ten Holt’s Canto Ostinato, the sprawling minimalist masterpiece for multiple pianos in a concert at (le) poisson rouge memorializing the composer’s recent death. The evening-length work is a complex tapestry of repetitive layers strung together in a flexible structure, ensuring that no two performances are alike– in the words of Ton van Asseldonk, his ‘compositions are not just single works, but rather a collection of an infinite number of compositions, all hidden in a single written code.’ With this performance of his most famous work, the six pianists of Grand Band pay homage to this creative genius who was at his best when writing for multiple pianos.

Grand Band is NYC’s New Music Piano Sextet. This unique ensemble has been described as a ‘supergroup of soloists’ (The Glass) and has garnered praise for delivering electrifying performances of new and contemporary music for six pianos. Making its debut at the Bang on a Can Marathon in a headlining performance of Steve Reich’s epic Six Pianos, the ensemble has been in increasing demand. Following a performance at (le) poisson rouge last summer, the New York Times declared that Grand Band consists of ‘six of the finest, busiest pianists active in New York’s contemporary-classical scene’ and that the group was a ‘rousing new ensemble.

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.
