yMusic (string trio, flute, clarinet, and trumpet) is “at the forefront of a rapidly changing performance culture” (The New York Times) through innovative work in the overlap between classical and popular music. In addition to the ensemble’s acclaimed Carnegie Hall debut, recent accomplishments include collaborations with Ben Folds, Nico Muhly, Caroline Shaw, Paul Simon and John Legend for the 59th Grammy Awards. The Speed of Sound Sessions are a celebration of musicians who support and promote composers whose work was created in the 21st century and who respond to the contemporary world in which we live.

Repertoire features a new work by Andrew Norman, with additional works by Gabriella Smith, Missy Mazzoli, and Caroline Shaw.
