Cellist Maya Beiser is joined by four all-stars cellists to perform new arrangements of Philip Glass’ powerful and achingly beautiful works.
Cellist, arranger, and producer Maya Beiser is joined with a group of all-star cellists to perform Maya Beiser x Philip Glass. Drawn from her latest album (which was recorded at Hudson Hall in the winter of 2021), the immersive performance brings together an astounding group of avant-garde cellists to create a multi-layered sound sculpture, exploring and unveiling new dimensions in some of Philip Glass’s most powerful and achingly beautiful works. Maya’s multi-cello arrangements include Glass’ piano Etudes Nos. 2 and 5, Mad Rush, Music in Similar Motion, and selections from Naqoyqatsi, part of Glass’s Qatsi Trilogy with filmmaker Godfrey Reggio.
Defying conventional norms with her boundary-crossing performances, cellist Maya Beiser has been hailed as “the reigning queen of avant-garde cello” by the Washington Post. She has graced world-class stages including Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Royal Albert Hall, and has collaborated with the likes of Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and Brian Eno, among many others. Her recent albums, Bowie Cello Symphonic: Blackstar (2020) and delugEON (2019), topped the classical music charts. Her soundtrack work includes extensive collaborations with composer James Newton Howard and M. Night Shyamalan.
