Label: NEW AMSTERDAM RECORDS
Now available on vinyl, Ecstatic Science is the latest release from yMusic, "six contemporary classical polymaths who playfully overstep the boundaries of musical genres” (The New Yorker). The album features 7 stunning compositions from Gabriella Smith, Missy Mazzoli, Paul Wiancko, and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw. Founded in New York City in 2008, yMusic believes in presenting excellent, emotionally communicative music, regardless of style or idiom. Their virtuosic execution and unique configuration (string trio, flute, clarinet, and trumpet) has attracted the attention of high profile collaborators—from Paul Simon to Bill T. Jones to Ben Folds—and inspired original works by some of today’s foremost composers.
