Maya Beiser: All Vows
In her newest production All Vows, cellist Maya Beiser explores the dichotomy between the physical, external world we inhabit and the inner landscape of our secret selves. In a carefully curated set of "uncovers" crafted by Evan Ziporyn, Maya goes deep inside music by Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Janis Joplin, and Howlin Wolf to reveal the core of each song as a musical masterpiece -- a totem of our collective consciousness forged by our shared, popular culture. Composer and Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche contributes Three Parts Wisdom, a rhythmic and multilayered new work written for Maya. Hellhound, written for Maya by David T. Little, is based on legendary bluesman Robert Johnson's "Hellhound On My Trail."
Featuring the world premieres of Bay Area premieres of Glenn Kotche’s Three Parts Wisdom, David T. Little’s Hellhound, and Mohammed Fairouz's Kol Nidrei and the Bay Area premieres of Michael Gordon's All Vows, Steve Reich's Cello Counterpoint and Michael Harrison's Just Ancient Loops, all with original film by Bill Morrison.
