A very warm welcome to New Music Dublin 2019!
New Music Dublin 2019 does exactly what it says on the tin: it really is all about the New. In this year’s festival we will hear world premieres of over 22 new works – 18 of them commissioned by New Music Dublin, almost all of them written by Irish composers and artists – and nearly everything else we’ll hear is being performed for the first time in Ireland, including music by our two featured international composers, Louis Andriessen (Netherlands) and Kaija Saariaho (Finland / Paris). The range of music being performed is immense – from full-scale orchestral to solos, left-field rock to sound art, chamber music to choral music – and it represents an incredible, wonderful outpouring of Irish and international musical creativity.
Almost every musical genre is represented in the Festival in some way, and we hope no-one feels left out. Come for one concert, come for two - come for the whole festival - and immerse yourself in the new, the striking, the unfamiliar and the thrillingly unexpected that is the lifeblood and excitement of new music.
Come and hear New. We look forward enormously to seeing you!
