Brooklyn new music trio Bearthoven will premiere a new work by Michael Gordon commissioned by the Johnstone Fund. Gordon is a prominent composer in the New York City contemporary classical community who has consistently defined the sound of his place and time for the past 30 years. Along with David Lang and Julia Wolfe, he founded Bang on a Can, a creative organization that has changed the face of contemporary music around the globe. This new work for Bearthoven is a result of a 10-year relationship with Gordon through Bang on a Can’s annual summer festival at MASS MoCA. Also included in the program is Special Malsconcities by Ithaca-based experimental art composer Sarah Hennies.
