Crash Ensemble was founded in 1997 by composer Donnacha Dennehy, conductor and pianist Andrew Synott and clarinetist Michael Seaver. They are marking 25 years with a special anniversary programme that encapsulates all aspects of their current work – live performances, commissions, non-live formats of film and installation, and a limited edition double album release. Highlights include Wingform Installation, the work of video artist and filmmaker Jack Phelan who created a work responding to the visual themes of Irish composer Barry O’Halpin’s Wingform – a four movement work for solo guitar and ensemble, as well as two birthday concerts.
National Concert Hall, Thursday November 24 to Sunday November 27 (Wingform, free)
Birthday concerts Saturday December 3 & Sunday December 4.
