Crash Ensemble are Ireland’s leading new music ensemble; a group of world-class musicians who play the most adventurous, ground-breaking music of today.

The programme includes a selection of Crash's [REACTIONS] commissions and postcard miniatures, interspersed with some colorful chamber and solo sounds.

A little bit about our [REACTIONS] series:

Amidst the onset of the global pandemic, we commissioned Irish & International composers from a range of musical backgrounds to write new works for duos within the group. Building on existing collaborative partnerships and cultivating and nurturing new relationships, composers were invited to create a musical response to their experiences, the current state and their thoughts for the future.
