St Paul's Hall

Andrew Zolinsky piano / electronics

Andrew Zolinsky presents an intriguing programme with a heady mix of five individual, contrasting voices from the farthest edges of the Atlantic. Two brand new pieces have been written for Andrew specially for this year’s hcmf//, co-commissioned with New Music Dublin and Iceland’s Dark Music Days: Tracing from Lilja Maria Ásmundsdóttir, one of the newest composers from the Icelandic scene, and a new work, Water Witch, from the ultra-imaginative, intense and shimmering vision of Ireland’s Linda Buckley. Linda’s work also heads a short review of the current Irish scene which includes an early work from Barry O’Halpin, a lockdown work written for Andrew from Chris McCormack, and Her wits, a tribute for Nonesuch’s Bob Hurwitz from Donnacha Dennehy.
