On Oct. 3, 2013, New Music New Haven opened its 2013-2014 season with music by student composers Benjamin Wallace, Brendon Randall-Myers, Bálint Karosi, Paul Kerekes and Daniel Schlosberg, and by faculty composers Aaron Jay Kernis and Hannah Lash.

This concert featured the premier of Hannah Lash's Moth Sketches. The title comes from an early stage of the work, as the piece began as music to score a short film about a moth. The work calls for a chamber ensemble of a decent size: scored for two violins, viola, cello, bass, piccolo, trumpet, five percussionists, harp and celesta.

Listen to individual pieces below.

Benjamin Wallace - Birthday Suite

Brendon Randall-Myers - For Ronny

Bálint Karosi - Ciaconna

Paul Kerekes - Focus

Daniel Schlosberg - Frau Traude

Aaron Jay Kernis - Morningsong with Mist (Aubade sous Brume)

Aaron Jay Kernis - Clear Midnight
