yMusic believes in presenting excellent, emotionally communicative music, regardless of style or idiom. They bring their virtuosic execution and unique configuration of string trio, flute, clarinet, and trumpet to Town Hall as part of our Town Music season. Drawing on their signature passion and charm, this ensemble presents the world premiere performance of a newly written piece by composer Judd Greenstein, commission especially for yMusic by Town Hall Seattle in conjunction with the Contemporary Youth Orchestra. Known for his structurally complex, viscerally engaging pieces of music, Greenstein’s compositional voice aligns with the stirring verve of yMusic, who embody the humanity of the music they play.
yMusic’s concerts have attracted the attention of high profile collaborators—from Paul Simon to Bill T. Jones to Ben Folds—and inspired original works by some of today’s foremost composers, including Nico Muhly, Missy Mazzoli, and Andrew Norman. Sit in for the premiere of Greenstein’s new commission performed by “six contemporary classical polymaths who playfully overstep the boundaries of musical genres” (The New Yorker).
