|The ground-breaking Sony recordings reissued. Too funky for the academy, the Bang on a Can All-Stars emerged from the scruffy environs of downtown New York playing a new kind of music, with a new kind of energy, for a new kind of audience. This is the music that made them famous ? their breakthrough CDs for Sony Classical, newly packaged and remastered onto one 74- minute disc. Music by Nick Didkovsky, Michael Gordon, Annie Gosfield, David Lang, Lois V Vierk, and Evan Ziporyn.
