Irish composer David Fennessy’s 5 Hofer Photographs is a highly imaginative musical depiction of five seminal pictures by twentieth century photographer Evelyn Hofer, including her most famous work Gravediggers, seen at right.ACM’s resident ensemble Palomar is thrilled to give the U.S. Premiere of this work and to perform music by six other contemporary Irish composers, two of whom, Enda Bates and Jane O’Leary, will be in attendance.
Other highlights include Ian Wilson’s Timelessly This inspired by the poetry of Seamus Heaney, Deirdre McKay’s searing Umber Sepia, Jane O’Leary’s haunting Only Gestures Remain and Enda Bates’ wildly inventive work for solo violin and electronics Searching for Home.
This is our last concert of the season and will be immediately followed by a reception which will really be a fun party that you won’t want to miss.
