Grand Band live at Peak Performances
The broadcast premiere of Grand Band's performance recorded live last year at Peak Performances, Montclair, USA.
Available for streaming free (see link below) on WNET's ALL ARTS network from January 10th @8pm (EST).
Grand Band is a six piano ensemble, hailed by The New York Times as “a new-music supergroup,” featuring “six of the finest, busiest pianists active in New York's contemporary-classical scene":
Erika Dohi, David Friend, Paul Kerekes, Blair McMillen, Lisa Moore and Isabelle O’Connell.
The sextet envelopes the audience in the sonic euphoria of contemporary compositions by Kate Moore, Julia Wolfe, Missy Mazzoli, and Julius Eastman, in a tour de force combination of sight and sound. Three Fragile Systems is complemented by the debut of an animated film by Joshua Frankel, commissioned specially by Peak Performances.
