Fourteen Minutes of Music on the Subject of Greeting Cards

Presented by New Music Dublin, this truly unique festival featuring a range of Irish and internationally renowned ensembles, is curated by the Bang on a Can co-founder and Pulitzer prize-winning composer David Lang.

As part of the festival, Crash Ensemble will partake in the Bang on a Can Marathon taking place in the main auditorium of the National Concert Hall on Saturday March 7th 2015.

We will perform a world premiere by Linda Buckley (which was commissioned by the Cork Midsummer Festival) as well as Andrew Hamilton's music for people who like art and Sean Clancy's Fourteen Minutes of Music on the Subject of Greeting Cards. In addition to Crash performing these pieces, the rest of the groups involved in the marathon (Bang on a Can All-Stars, So Percussion, RTÉ Contempo Quartet and more) will perform works by Donnacha Dennehy, Kate Moore, Bryce Dessner and George Crumb.
