Listen: Hannah Lash's 'Moth Sketches' Premiere
Recorded Live at the Yale School of Music on October 3, 2013
Saturday, August 08, 2015
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.
