Crash Ensemble, the Dublin-based contemporary music performing group, will premiere a new work by Nico Muhly on 25 November in Dublin’s Liberty Hall.
Muhly is an American composer of broadly post-minimalist music. Muhly recently received huge acclaim for his opera Two Boys, which premiered in June of this year at the Coliseum in London. Muhly has also received acclaim for a range of instrumental pieces and film music scores, including, in the latter case, the music for the 2008 film The Reader.
The Muhly world premiere will be given within a concert entitled ‘Young Americans’, in which Crash will profile Muhly’s music alongside that of four of his American peers, Missy Mazzoli, Sean Friar, Timothy Andres and Ken Ueno. In addition to the new Muhly work, Crash will also perform Muhly’s pieces It Goes Without Saying and How About Now.
A pre-show interview will be conducted with Muhly by RTÉ Lyric FM’s Bernard Clarke, at 6pm. in Liberty Hall’s Connolly Room.
Tickets are priced at €18 and €25, with early bird concessions being available at €20.
