The Yale School of Music presents a New Music New Haven concert featuring music by guest composer Bryce Dessner on Thursday, March 5 at 7:30 pm. The concert also includes music by six YSM student composers: Krists Auznieks, Natalie Dietterich, Ian Gottlieb, Brian Heim, Michael Laurello, and Tiange Zhou.
The concert will stream live on the School of Music’s website.
The program will feature two pieces by Dessner, a Yale School of Music alumnus who has won recognition as a composer as well as for his work in the Grammy-nominated band The National. His string quartet Tenebre was a 2010 commission by the acclaimed Kronos Quartet. His work Murder Ballads, written for a sextet of strings, winds, percussion, and piano, was commissioned in 2013 by the new music ensemble eighth blackbird. MORE
