Beijing Modern Music Festival
Central Conservatory of Music
Beijing, China

Bang on a Can brings its polyrhythmic virtuosity and all-world versatility to the Beijing Modern Music Festival, celebrating the breadth of the genre-busting Bang on a Can sound with two boundary bending programs of music by co-founders and artistic directors Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe

Performed by the Bang on a Can Festival Ensemble, a veritable who’s who roster of cutting-edge performers on the New York new music scene from the annual Bang on a Can Summer Festival @ MASS MoCA, the second concert on May 20 is an explosive program of chamber works: on the bill is Julia Wolfe's Girlfriend, David Lang's sweet air andthese broken wings, Michael Gordon's ACDC and Light Is Calling, and Ping Jin's A Shanty.
