Double Take – Grisey + Dennehy @ New Music Dublin
The inimitable Crash Ensemble play Donnacha Dennehy’s Disposable Dissonance and the late Gérard Grisey’s Vortex Temporum in a late night show: a great opportunity to hear the work of two genre-busting composers brought to life by Ireland’s premier new music ensemble.
“Donnacha Dennehy has a soundworld all of his own” The Wire
“Few composers could claim to have initiated a whole style. Debussy is one; Webern, another; Gérard Grisey – who would have been 70 this month – is a third” Gramophone
Hear the work of the composer of The Second Violinist and The Last Hotel alongside the work of one of the great innovators of contemporary music.
Composer Donnacha Dennehy, Disposable Dissonance
