Bang on a Can All-Stars & special guest Glenn Kotche of Wilco

With “a potent blend of intensity, authority, and abandon” (Vanity Fair), the world’s leading contemporary music ensemble turns out full-throttle performances as refined as they are exhilarating. Here they team with Kotche, drummer/percussionist for Wilco, in a program featuring compositions from BoaC co-founder Lang, Kotche, and Reich—the iconic composer-percussionist who inspired Kotche’s own experiments. At the crossroads of Wilco’s art rock and Reich’s revamped classicism, Reich’s 2×5—written for two electric guitars, keyboard, bass, and drumkit, closes the program.
