Hailed by NPR’s Fred Child as “one of the groups that has really helped to shape the future of classical music,” yMusic is a group of six New York City instrumentalists flourishing in the overlap between pop and classical. Since their inception in 2008, yMusic has striven to bring a classical chamber music aesthetic to venues outside the traditional concert hall. Their virtuosic execution and unique configuration (string trio, flute, clarinet, and trumpet) have caught the attention of high profile collaborators—from Bon Iver to José Gonzalez. They followed their two full-length solo albums, 2014’s Balance Problems and 2011’s Beautiful Mechanical (Time Out New York’s #1 Classical Record of that Year), with 2015’s, So There, a collaboration with Ben Folds. In 2017, yMusic brought us two new releases: First (music by Son Lux) and The Way Is Read with The Staves.
