Crash Ensemble premieres Dry at Kilkenny Festival

July 19, 2013

The fortieth annual Kilkenny Festival in Ireland presents the newest work by Michael Gordon, called Dry, written for and premiered by the Crash Ensemble.

Over the last 16 years, Crash Ensemble has established itself as a “a powerhouse of new music” (The Irish Times) renowned for commissioning, producing and performing the most adventurous and exciting works both from established international composers like Steve Reich and Kevin Volans and up-and-coming fresh talent. That tradition continues in this mouthwatering concert that showcases the work of some of the best contemporary Irish and American composers.
