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 most recent New Sounds Live concert at Merkin Hall featuring the 8-person strong group, Newspeak.

We’ll hear a quintessential Philip Glass piece, “Glassworks” (1981) from a live recording made in April of 2010 at the Manhattan venue Le Poisson Rouge. Featuring the super-tight new music all-star ensemble, Signal, conducted by Brad Lubman with keyboardist/composer Michael Riesman, this happens to have been the New York premiere. For this New Sounds, we’ll sample from the six-part work and listen to music by other keyboardist/composers for hybrid ensembles.
