Summary

Michael Gordon, maverick composer and founder of the iconic new music organization Bang on a Can, has brought together one of the most unorthodox ensembles imaginable. Best known for music with a driving intensity and power, Gordon’s Rushes pushes new boundaries and explores interweaving musical textures and timbres with this piece written for seven bassoons. Led by Dana Jessen, the Rushes Ensemble is poised to provide an entirely new way of experiencing the double reed.
