Bowie Symphonic: Blackstar ft. cellist Maya Beiser, arr. Evan Ziporyn
June 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
City Parks Foundation’s SummerStage and Le Poisson Rouge present this free concert at SummerStage in Central Park. Cellist Maya Beiser is the soloist in a startling and soaring new version for solo cello and orchestra of David Bowie’s entire last album Blackstar. Arranged by composer Evan Ziporyn, who will also conduct Ensemble LPR, Blackstar has been performed to sold-out audiences in Boston and Barcelona and will tour the U.S. this fall. The Donny McCaslin Group, including members who worked with Bowie on Blackstar, will open the concert with a special performance. The performance is part of Le Poisson Rouge’s 10th anniversary season, LPR X.
