The Staves’ collaboration with classical ensemble yMusic pairs their graceful vocals and exemplary harmonies with yMusic’s virtuosic, shimmering orchestral textures. Originally commissioned by the 2016 Eaux Claires Festival in Wisconsin, the project is an expression of mutual admiration. yMusic have long been fans of The Staves, and The Staves dug deep into yMusic’s catalogue of contemporary classical compositions to find pieces that would lend themselves to the addition of the sisters’ poignant lyrics and vocal performance. The result is magical - a set that fits snugly between art and pop, expressed with the utmost care and attention. Musically they built upon several compositions written by Ryan Lott, as well as works by Sufjan Stevens and Marcos Balter.
