Hub New Music
Kojiro Umezaki, shakuhachi
Visionary, bold, and imaginative programming are the hallmarks of Hub New Music, contemporary trailblazers who take the quartet repertoire for flute, clarinet, violin, and cello to new heights. In Tied Together, eastern and western musical traditions converse in a cross-continental partnership with composers of the Asia/America New Music Institute. Kojiro Umezaki, “a spectacular master” (Los Angeles Times) of the ethereal shakuhachi—and alumnus of both the distinguished Silk Road Ensemble and Lafayette College ’91—joins them. “Next time Hub New Music offers a concert, go, listen, and be changed” (Boston Globe).
