Phantasmagoria with Hub New Music Ensemble

Paintings by artist Hans Hofmann serve as the muse for this program of evocative, hyper-emotional and sometimes surreal musical works. Composer Michael Ippolito’s Capriccio, a new 25-minute multi-movement work, pulls inspiration from four Hofmann paintings, epitomizing the visceral, spontaneous and rebellious spirit of abstract expressionism. Additional music written for Hub by Kati Agócs, Takuma Itoh and Ryan Carter further immerse audiences in otherworldly listening experiences and sonic landscapes.
