On March 3rd, Versipel New Music presents Trombonist William Lang for your listening pleasure! Lang will bring a dynamic concert of modern works for trombone solo and trombone + electronics to New Orleans. William’s program includes works by David Reminick, Yu Kuwubara, Reiko Fueting, Iannis Xenakis, Eve Beglarian, Heather Stebbins/William Lang, Jason Eckardt, and Christian Gentry.
Originally from Long Island, trombonist William Lang is an active performer, improviser, and teacher based in New York City. He can be found playing in all settings and style, from the avant-garde and classical to Broadway and indie chamber pop. He has given his signature unaccompanied recitals throughout the United States, played concertos in both America and Europe, and has also recorded with such artists as Philip Glass, David Bryne, St. Vincent, and Jonsi (of Sigur Ros.) Intensely passionate for chamber music, he regularly performs alongside his groundbreaking ensembles loadbang (an original and unique group of musicians interested in cutting edge music) and the Guidonian Hand (a trombone quartet dedicated to breaking boundaries within the brass community.) The New York Times has called his playing “fiercely, virtuosic” and the Boston Globe has hailed him for his “superb performance” in past solo works.
