Famously surounded by sprawl to the north, Mexico to the south, the ocean to the west and the desert to the east, much of San Diego feels like an isolated beach town that never stopped growing, or an LA that never started. But this sleepy, sunny city hosts one of the country’s most active new music communities, centered around the youthful music program at the University of California, San Diego in La Jolla. None of the six composers represented here are older than 30, and all demonstrate the extraordinary vitality of new classical music in San Diego.
