BAM Next Wave Festival to feature Maya Beiser's All Vows
Cellist Maya Beiser will bring her new production, All Vows, to the BAM Next Wave Festival in New York this fall. All Vows, featuring Maya with drummer Joey Waronker and bassist Jherek Bischoff, will have four performances at BAM from October 14 to 17.
The production explores the dichotomy between the physical, external world we inhabit and the inner landscape of our secret selves. It features Michael Gordon's All Vows, Glenn Kotche’s Three Parts Wisdom, and Mohammed Fairouz’s Kol Nidrei, plus Michael Harrison's Just Ancient Loops with film by Bill Morrison and re-imagined classic rock from Maya’s latest best-selling album Uncovered.
In reviews of past performances of All Vows, Maya has been described as "a musician with stunning technical resources and intense musical instincts" by The Financial Times, "the reigning queen of the avant-garde cello" by The Washington Post, and "ferociously adventurous" by The San Francisco Chronicle.
All Vows will also be hosted at SPA Houston on October 2.
