“In a musician’s life, few moments reveal themselves to be genuinely subversive. But when the clarinetist Evan Ziporyn first heard Brian Eno’s Music for Airports in 1978, he knew such a moment was at hand. ‘ It upended certain ideas a lot of us were holding,’ Mr. Ziporyn said
On Tuesday, Mr. Ziporyn’s sextet, the new-music group Bang on a Can All-Stars, will bring the first of four parts of Music for Airports, along with five other works, to Yale Law School as part of the courtyard concert series at the International Festival of Arts and Ideas in New Haven. He expects that some listeners will find the piece as provocative as he did when he first heard it.”
