yMusic yMusic (Noriko Okabe)

On this New Sounds, listen to some of the central players of the indie-chamber, or indie-classical "scene."  We'll hear from yMusic, a new music group who can move between folk, classical, and indie quite effortlessly.  We'll hear music from their latest recording, a demo of Gabriel Kahane's song cycle, “For the Union Dead,” (music by Gabriel Kahane, words by Robert Lowell), along with music from the ACME ensemble, recorded live.  Plus, another live recording from the New Sounds Live concert series at Merkin Hall featuring the 8-person strong group, Newspeak.
