Given that one of the chief concerns of Bang on a Can, the composers’ collective Mr. Gordon helped found in 1987, was to restore rhythmic vitality and elemental energy to contemporary concert music, you can safely assume that he knows more than a little about starkness. But Mr. Gordon also has a knack for writing music that feels fundamental at first, then reveals a beguiling complexity and nuance on closer examination.
