Hub New Music's Virtual Concert For UTC
The music they play is often called “classical” music, but that’s a misnomer.
Music composed in the 21st Century for musicians to play in the concert hall may utilize the same instruments in familiar configurations - trio, quartet, orchestra - but this is new music.
Hub New Music is a quartet based in Boston.
The four members are cellist Jesse Christeson, violinist Alyssa Wang, clarinetist David Dziardziel (Jard Jeel) and flutist Michael Avitabile - who leads the group.
They played a virtual concert on UTC's website on Friday evening.
The week before the concert, Richard Winham talked to Michael Avitabile about the music they make - starting with how they make it.
The music is from a 10-part composition called Soul House, written for them by Robert Honstein. The interview features Part 3: “Alcove."
