The program will feature classic Phish songs and solo Trey compositions, as well as the New York premiere of Time Turns Elastic, co-composed by Anastasio and long-time collaborator Don Hart. Time Turns Elastic is a groundbreaking work for vocals, electric guitar and orchestra with long, orchestral passages intertwined with epic guitar lines and vocals in the vein of such classic Trey compositions as The Divided Sky, Guyute and Fluffhead. With Trey’s electric guitar at the forefront, Time Turns Elastic pushes the limits of orchestral music.

Time Turns Elastic received its world premiere in September 2008 with Orchestra Nashville, conducted by Paul Gambill, at the Ryman Auditorium. It was recently performed with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Marin Alsop. In May, the album was released on Trey’s own Rubber Jungle Records.
