Full: Evan Ziporyn
Programmed by Sarah Cahill
Composer and clarinetist Evan Ziporyn performs on solo and multitracked clarinet and bass clarinet, interpreting works by Donald Fagen, Philip Glass, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, Jaco Pastorius, and others. The program centers on two monumental works from the late 1960s: Glass’s long-lost Best out of Three for three clarinets, and Ziporyn’s solo bass clarinet version of Hendrix’s Woodstock Improvisations. The concert also highlights Pop Channel, Ziporyn’s first solo clarinet album in twenty years.
