Listen: yMusic Performs Son Lux, Marcos Balter and Sufjan Stevens
Tuesday, March 08, 2016
The evening was originally meant to focus on composer Valgeir Sigurðsson's score for the film "Dreamland," but a late change prompted Nadia to invite her longtime ensemble yMusic to explore music from its two full-length albums "Beautiful Mechanical" and "Balance Problems" as well as three yet-to-be released pieces by composer Son Lux.
Sirota is a founding member of the American Contemporary Music Ensemble, yMusic and the Wordless Music Orchestra. She also teaches in the Contemporary Performance Program at the Manhattan School of Music and is the host of Q2 Music's acclaimed Meet the Composer podcast.
