Hub New Music makes its Jordan Hall debut with a portrait concert of longtime friend and colleague Kati Agócs, including a world premiere. Called "powerful" by Time Out New York, Kati's music is hailed for merging sensuous allure with lapidary rigor, and is performed by leading musicians worldwide. The New York Times has characterized her chamber music as “striking”, her orchestral music as “filled with attractive ideas”, and her vocal music as possessing “an almost Nineteenth-century naturalness.” Kati Agócs received the prestigious Arts and Letters Award in Music from The American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2014, and is also a recent Guggenheim Fellow. She serves on the composition faculty at the New England Conservatory in Boston.
Hub launches the Pushing Boundaries Project as guest artists with the Boston Conservatory's newly launched Contemporary Artists Series. Tonight's program showcases genre bending 21st century repertoire with music by Daniel Wohl (world premiere), Robert Honstein (east coast premiere), Maria Finkelmeier, and Judd Greenstein.

Hub opens the season with SoundScapes: The Music of Andrew Norman. This program, consisting of three pieces, highlights the works of Andrew Norman (b. 1979) and his ties to the world of architecture. One of the most innovative composers of our generation, Andrew draws inspiration from a diverse span of architects and architectural concepts ranging from Roman cathedrals to Frank Lloyd Wright. The star work of the program is his string trio A Companion Guide to Rome, a breathtaking piece that was named a Pulitzer finalist in 2012. As part of the performance, Hub New Music will create a digital program including imagery of Andrew’s architectural inspirations, to create a multi-sensory experience for the audience.
