New Music Dublin 2024: Diatribe Stage - Barry Guy Quartet & Mariam Rezaei

28 April 2024 21:00

John Field Room, National Concert Hall

A back-to-back concert, presented on NMD 2024’s Diatribe Stage to close out the festival.​​ In the first half, quartet Il Ritorno del Angelo perform four new works for improvising ensemble, marking the release of their 2024 recording on Diatribe Records.​

In the second, Mariam Rezaei makes her Dublin debut at NMD 2024 - an awe inspiring showcase of the sonic continuum of turntablism, in this late-evening performance on the multi-venue Diatribe Stage.

Formed in 2023, Il Ritorno del Angelo is made up of vocalist Olesya Zdorovetska, saxophonist Nick Roth, pianist Izumi Kimura and bassist Barry Guy. Their upcoming album celebrates the talents of these outstanding contemporary musicians not only as performers, but also as new music creators—with each contributing a work to this programme.​

Described as ‘one of the most technically adept and creatively daring artists to use the turntable as a musical instrument’ (The Wire, 2023), Rezaei is a multi-award winning composer, turntablist and performer. A recipient of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Artists, she appears at NMD hot on the heels of performances at Counterflows/ REWIRE and IM Darmstadt, 2023.
