“Cello rock star” (Rolling Stone) Maya Beiser performs music from her “kickass new record” (WNYC), TranceClassical, live at Le Poisson Rouge. From Bach to Lou Reed, Hildegard von Bingen to Wilco’s Glenn Kotche, Maya brings together a wide array of composers with her unique artistic vision on TranceClassical, and “continues to push her instrument to new places” (The Washington Post).
TranceClassical, released worldwide this summer, was No. 1 on iTunes/Apple Music in classical and a “Hot Shot Debut” on the Billboard overall classical chart at No. 4. The opening track, Maya’s arrangement of the well-known Orchestral Suite No. 2 by Bach, was featured on NPR First Watch, which wrote, “The pulsating bass line ticks away, reminding us of the timelessness of the music – already 285 years old.”
