June 9: Maya premieres "Bowie Symphonic: The Blackstar Project" at New York's Central Park Summer Stage - with Ensemble LPR conducted by Evan Ziporyn (who also arranged the entire album for cello and orchestra)

May 16, 2018

From The New York Times:

 

The very capable hands of Ensemble LPR, a group of inventive musicians devoted to bridging all forms of music, give David Bowie’s swan song the orchestral treatment with Maya Beiser as the soloist. The adventurous Ms. Beiser has been called the “cello goddess,” which is not hyperbole: She summons from her instrument an emotional power so stirring that even the most stoic audience members risk turning into sobbing sacks of flesh. Couple that with the fact that Bowie knowingly crafted “Blackstar” as a farewell to his fans, and it’s a fair bet that there’ll be nary a dry eye at SummerStage on Saturday. Bring a hankie.
