WHAT THE NEW YORK TIMES SAID ABOUT CRASH ENSEMBLE PERFORMANCE LAST WEEK

“a magnificently energetic, wildly cacophonous vocal work”
 
 “the Irish new-music band that plays with the energy and spirit of a rock group”
 
 “Iarla O Lionaird sang the Gaelic text with simplicity and directness in a plaintive folk style, and the ensemble — amplified strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion and electric guitar, with Alan Pierson conducting — gave it a powerful account”
