Video Preview: Cellist Maya Beiser Reimagines Bowie on Upcoming Album

Cellist Maya Beiser is an artist from whom one never really knows what to expect. Her projects are multifaceted, sometimes multidisciplinary, and most often draw on the work of contemporary composers. Bowie Cello Symphonic: Blackstar is her most recent recording, due out January 10 on Islandia Music Records, and is a reimagining of David Bowie’s final album. This track, “Lazarus” was arranged for Beiser and the 30-piece Ambient Orchestra by Evan Ziporyn, a founding member of Bang On A Can All-Stars
