New Music New Haven features Ezra Laderman’s Piano Sonata No. 5 on Feb. 2

Featured performers include TwoSense, pianist Amy J. Yang

The Yale School of Music presents a New Music New Haven performance on Thursday, February 2 at 8pm in Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Hall (470 College St., New Haven, corner of Wall St.). The performance will feature the Piano Sonata No. 5 of Yale faculty composer Ezra Laderman. YSM alumna Amy Yang ’10 AD, who has been hailed by the New York Concert Review as “a magnificent artist and poet,” will perform the sonata.

The piano-cello duo TwoSense, featuring Bang-on-a-Can All-Stars Ashley Bathgate (’07 MM, ’08 AD), cello and Lisa Moore, piano, will also be featured on the program. The “admired performers” (New Yorker) will play Daniel Wohl’s One Piece and Paul KerekesReach.

Stephen Feigenbaum’s Fantasy for oboe and piano explores a new take on the relationship between performer and accompanist, with the piano taking a largely commentary role and the oboe holding together the piece’s groundwork. Collideoscope, a piano quartet by Jordan Kuspa, dramatizes the composer’s interactions with a work of art.

The program will also include Orbis Tertius, a exploration of extra-terrestrial fanfares by Matthew Welch for the unique combination of brass septet and bagpipes. MORE
