As a composer and performer, Bang on a Can All-Stars co-founder Evan Ziporyn has expanded the boundaries of clarinet playing. He has also explored the interaction of different musical cultures, forming in 1993 Gamelan Galak Tika to perform new music—including his own—that uses both Western and Balinese instruments by American and Balinese composers. Join Ziporyn and Carnegie Hall Director of Artistic Planning Jeremy Geffen as they discuss the virtuosity and cross-cultural interaction that has marked Ziporyn’s work over the last decade.

MacMillan’s best-known works—from The Confession of Isobel Gowdie to his St. John Passion—are grand in scale with a powerful religiosity. But his music also has a degree of intimacy, a quality that comes through in the chamber music on this program. MacMillan will be on hand to discuss his music with Carnegie Hall Director of Artistic Planning Jeremy Geffen.
