Maya Beiser, acclaimed as “a force of nature” (Boston Globe) and “ferociously adventurous" (San Francisco Chronicle), will release her next album, TranceClassical, worldwide on July 29, 2016 on Innova Recordings. In TranceClassical, Maya explores music for cello that entrances, and that transforms and transcends boundaries, styles, and centuries. TranceClassical includes selections by as wide an array of composers as is imaginable, brought to common ground by Maya’s unique artistic vision – J.S. Bach, Michael Gordon, Imogen Heap, Glenn Kotche, Lou Reed/David Lang, Julia Wolfe, Mohammed Fairouz, David T. Little, and Hildegard von Bingen, plus arrangements created by Maya.
Of this very personal project, Maya says, “TranceClassical started from a washed-out still photo in my mind – me, as a little girl curled with a blanket on her parents’ sofa, hearing Bach for the first time, hanging on to every mysterious note coming out of the scratchy LP. TranceClassical is the arc my mind sketches between everything I create and Bach – David Lang and Bach, Glenn Kotche and Bach, Michael Gordon and Bach."
Two tracks from TranceClassical are streaming now on Apple Music. The entire album will premiere on Apple Music on July 22.
