The Contemporary Music Centre and the Irish Composers’ Collective have joined forces again to present a second Night of New Music in the Kevin Barry Room of the National Concert Hall on 30th of March 2011. Each night begins with The Contemporary Music Centre’s new music::new Ireland salon series, followed by the Irish Composers’ Collective monthly concert, with a special offer on wine and tapas in the National Concert Hall during the break.

The new music::new Ireland salon, 6pm – 7pm,  on the 30th March is a feast of contemporary piano works presented by Therese Fahy in advance of a US tour in April/May of this year. Works featuring in the tour and this Salon performance include Frank Corcoran’s Nine Pratoleva Pearls , Ed Bennett’s Gothic, Ian Wilson’s Stations (no.6 and no.9)
