Premiering digitally on April 7, this digital performance will be available for on demand viewing for three months following the premiere.
Boston's Hub New Music, a Neighborhood Arts standout in both in-person and digital performances, returns to our live performance series with a concert that kicks off the “Solo(s) Together “commissioning project, in which contemporary composers from diverse backgrounds will create short works for four musicians."
Inspired by our 2019 “Concert For One” project, the pieces will feature short solos for each of the four players, before all the players come together at the end. To launch the project, our friends at Hub New Music will perform a piece by Nathalie Joachim, GRAMMY-nominated Haitian-American composer and flutist (formerly of Eighth Blackbird) who creates varied and powerful works for organizations across the country.
Joachim’s new piece, “They Found Me In Pieces,” is a play on words describing the modular puzzle piece structure of this work. “It is meant to be approached playfully,” Joachim says, “and is designed to be performed in a variety of structures: as four unique one-minute solos; as a flashy one minute quartet; or in any and all combinations of duos and/or trios available (sequenced as the performers see fit). My hope is that every performance is approached with a sense of creativity and whimsy, making each iteration fun and unique.”
Hub New Music members – flutist Michael Avitable, clarinetist Nicholas Brown, violinist Alyssa Wang, and cellist Jesse Christeson – are all committed educators and contemporary music advocates as well as virtuosic and expressive players. We can’t think of a better ensemble to launch our exciting commissioning project!
