The Yale School of Music presents a New Music New Haven concert featuring composer/pianist Vijay Iyer on Thursday, April 2 at 7:30 pm. The concert features Iyer performing with the Brentano String Quartet, as well as new pieces by YSM student composers.
Iyer’s Time, Place, Action, a 25-minute quintet for piano and strings, was written for the Brentano Quartet’s “Fragments” project. In Iyer’s words, the ensemble asked composers “to start with a fragment by an Old Master, and create something out of it. I used a short fragment by Mozart and built something.” MORE
