Hailed as “one of the most vital and original ensembles on the American music scene” (The New York Times), Alarm Will Sound and its fearless artistic director Alan Pierson uncover how composers utilise musical language to underscore factual and fictional history. The group performs Donnacha Dennehy’s Grá agus Bás, which weaves traditional Irish music into contemporary forms to address the ebb of ancient morphing into the present. The program also includes the US premiere of Richard Ayres No. 42 In the Alps, incorporating yodeling and other folk idioms to articulate the tale of a young plane crash survivor, portrayed by the haunting Kiera Duffy, as well as the world premieres of commissions by Australian composer Kate Moore and avant-garde virtuoso guitarist Kaki King.
Featured non-Australian music: Kaki King, Donnacha Dennehy, Richard Ayres
