yMusic, composed of "six contemporary classical polymaths who playfully overstep the boundaries of musical genres” (New Yorker), performs in concert halls, arenas, and clubs around the world. Founded in New York City in 2008, yMusic presents excellent, emotionally communicative music, regardless of style or idiom. Founded and led by curator-producer Kate Nordstrum, Liquid Music develops innovative projects with iconoclastic artists in unique formats. The series focuses on collaborations and risk-taking. This concert features works by contemporary composers inspired by nature, and the music enhances the nineteenth-century plein air art works in True to Nature: Open-Air Painting in Europe, 1780–1870, on view through May 3, 2020.
