This is one of the many nights I wish I was out on the East coast. Tonight at Carnegie Hall, there is show not to be missed — Terry Riley’s In C, featuring Kronos, Terry Riley, and original In C performers Stuart Dempster, Jon Gibson, and Katrina Krimsky, plus Dennis Russell Davies, Bryce Dessner, Dave Douglas, Trevor Dunn, Jacob Garchik, Philip Glass, Michael Harrison, Michael Hearst, Scott Johnson, Saskia Lane, Margaret Leng Tan, Lenny Pickett, Gyan Riley, Aaron Shaw, Judith Sherman, Kathleen Supové, Wu Man, Yi Yang, Dan Zanes, Evan Ziporyn, Koto Vortex, Quartet New Generation, So Percussion, members of the Grand Valley State University New Music Ensemble, and others.

I’m going to Neko Case [her new single] at the Chicago Theatre which will be killer I’m sure.   But if you are in NY tonight, you have to go to this show.

Here’s a vid just for sake of reference.

More tour updates coming soon.

Have a great weekend.

  3. Thanks for posting, you guys. I don’t think there is any video, though I did see some people videotaping and photographing at the rehearsals. There were so many musicians involved, so much sound and chaos, that we were all grateful that the event had been so well organized by the Kronos folks.

    The biggest inspiration of it all, for me, was to be a part of the communal, meditative space that the piece creates. Sure, it was exciting to be around so many legendary musicians, but really it was the feeling that we were all one within the space of Riley’s piece that blew me away. Again a lot of the credit for enabling that space goes to Kronos Quartet and Dennis Russell Davies, who was conducting. It was an exciting gig, for sure.
