"Donnacha Dennehy has a soundworld all of his own." -The Wire
Composer Donnacha Dennehy’s works will be featured at this year’s Festival including on a portrait concert dedicated to music. His work draws minimalism, traditional Irish music, and the microtones of the harmonic series. He has had work featured in festivals and venues around the world, including the Edinburgh International Festival, Royal Opera House (London), Carnegie Hall, The Barbican, and BAM. His Nonesuch release Grá agus Bás was named one of NPR's "50 favorite albums" (in any genre) in 2011. He has been on the music faculty at Princeton University since 2014.
