perform music by Clara Iannotta, Cassandra Miller and Sam Perkin (World Premiere)
1pm Saturday 17 June 2023
Oriel Centre at Dundalk Gaol.
On Saturday things get busy. At one o’clock the Explore Ensemble are in jail – the clean, intimate space of Dundalk Gaol. Their concert includes a new work Awe for string quartet and video by Irish live wire Sam Perkin, Cassandra Miller’s Leaving but most of the music is by Clara Iannotta: two urgently whispering quartets, both quite different, but both of them leading you along with the dream logic of a David Lynch movie. No wonder Iannotta is one of the most sought-after composers in Europe today.
Cassandra Miller – Leaving (7)
Clara Iannotta – A Failed Entertainment (16′)
Sam Perkin – Awe (18′) world premiere
Clara Iannotta – dead wasps in the jam-jar (iii) (13′)
