Composer and Yale School of Music composition faculty member Ezra Laderman Composer and Yale School of Music composition faculty member Ezra Laderman (Vincent Oneppo)

On February 7, 2013, New Music New Haven's third 2012-2013 season concert featured music from Yale graduate student composers Matthew Welch, James Rubino, Stephen Feigenbaum, Polina Nazaykinskaya and Bálint Karosi in addition to Yale School of Music professor Ezra Laderman.

Laderman's Partita for Solo Bassoon, written in 2012 for Frank Morelli, winds through intricate patterns with the natural tempo of an animal exploring a forest. Every so often, a turn of phrase hits a tonal spot, as if it were about to resolve, before quickly moving back into the tangled path Laderman created.

Listen to individual pieces below.

Matthew Welch - The Three Truths

James Rubino - Thrice

Stephen Feigenbaum - Cliff Notes

Polina Nazaykinskaya - Lamentation of the Bird

Ezra Laderman - Partita for Solo Bassoon
